The partnership builds on the achievements and capabilities of a project funded by the Korea Green Growth Trust Fund (KGGTF) which aims to localize technologies and best practices required to boost CSA in Egypt. 

The latest partnership with the World Bank comes as an application of the Climate Resilient Agri-Food Transformation (CRAFT) project under Egypt’s Nexus of Water, Food, and Energy (NWFE) programme.

The new partnership also targets launching innovative digital applications that are tailored to serve the agricultural sector in Egypt.

It is also drafted to cover regional activities with a focus on Africa.

A key part of sustainable economic development and green growth is closely related to building sustainable infrastructure and efficient use of resources, which will be achieved in the partnership with the World Bank and the KGGTF, said Egyptian Minister of International Cooperation Rania Al-Mashat.
