IOFS and HAWAQF Niger Meet to Kick Start Implementation of Bilateral Memorandum of Understanding

17 September 2021

On 17 September 2021, the Islamic Organization of Food Security (IOFS) hosted an online meeting with the High Authority of Waqf in Niger (HAWAQF), which was represented by Mr. Djibril Mansour, Responsible for Cooperation Department, and Ms.  Ramatou Souley, Project Officer. The IOFS Team was composed by Mr. Abdula Manafi Mutualo, Senior Liaison Officer, and Dr. Shahlo Atabaeva, Programme Manager.

The meeting was the initial stage for implementing the Memorandum of Understanding that the IOFS signed with the High Authority of Waqf in Niger (HAWAQF), a Specialized Public Institution, under the Presidency of the Republic of Niger, at the recently held 46th Annual Meeting of the Board of Governors of the Islamic Development Bank (IsDB) in Tashkent, Republic of Uzbekistan, in which, inter alia, it was agreed that four projects would be implemented in that African country, including Green Waqf and Water Management.

In this context, the two sides agreed on an implementation framework that includes better clarification from Niger on their specific needs related to the two abovementioned fields, particularly on water management in agriculture. The IOFS would use such information to consult with the concerned Member States and relevant sister Institutions towards result-oriented projects design and implementation for the benefit of farmers in Niger.
