Sustainable Food Security in the UAE

  • 20 Sep 2022
  • 19:00 - 22:00
  • The Ritz-Carlton, Dubai JBR

The Netherlands Business Council UAE in Dubai is inviting BBC members to its next Monthly Networking Event on Tuesday, September 20st.

Whether it’s the Covid-19 pandemic, climate change, rising population numbers or the Russian invasion of Ukraine; the global supply chain and the availability of food are under a constant threat. The importance of local agriculture and domestic, the sustainable food industry is getting more and more clear. But how does one turn dry deserts into fructuous soil without putting too much pressure on the scarce natural resources that are available?

Speakers Olav Scholte, Commercial Lead Agriculture Lighting at Signify Middle East & Africa and Giovanni Angiolini, General Manager at Priva Middle East will not only answer that question but also share their thoughts on the many cross-sectoral opportunities that will arise when shaping a sustainable food sector in the UAE.

Our speakers have been active for many years in this region and are well connected in the private and public sectors. In a panel setting, they will focus on what the UAE needs and how the Dutch government and Dutch companies are playing a vital role in reaching the UAE’s Sustainability Development Goals. Every aspect can and will be discussed from digital transition to human capital, and from Dutch know-how to local farming.

Don’t miss this chance to learn how your company can contribute.
