DDCAP was pleased to be part of the Transformers Summit which took place in Cambridge on 10 December 2018. The Transformers Summit, sponsored by the Islamic Development Bank (IsDB), encouraged collaboration amongst entrepreneurs, innovators and global leaders to discuss the role of science, innovation and technology in achieving Sustainable Development Goal 11: Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable. The IsDB is a multilateral development bank that has been working for over 40 years to improve the lives of the communities it serves by delivering impact at scale.
With the global population rapidly expanding our cities, the IsDB believes that investing in science, technology and innovation is a key driver in addressing the continued demands on housing, energy, clean water, food, transportation infrastructure, and societal services.
DDCAP Group Managing Director, Stella Cox CBE, spoke about the scale of the contribution that the Islamic Financial community could make to ethical and sustainable financing solutions for cities.
