Sustainable Food Security in the UAE Monthly Networking Event

20 September, 2022 07:00 PM-09:30 PM

Sustainable Food Security in the UAE

The opportunities for Dutch Companies to help the UAE reach its Sustainability Development Goals.

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 a domestic, 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? Our panel of experts will not only answer that question but also share thoughts on the many cross-sectoral opportunities that will arise and how Dutch companies are already making a difference in shaping a sustainable food sector in the UAE. 


Olav Scholte, Commercial Lead Agriculture Lighting at Signify Middle East & Africa

Giovanni Angiolini, General Manager at Priva Middle East

Fleur Hoog Antink, Senior Commercial and Economic Advisor at the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands 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.

The evening will be moderated by Stefanie Schachtschabel, Founder & CEO at Welcome to the World LLC, and Chair of Dutch Sustainability Group.

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