Development professionals from the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN), from countries around the world, are collaborating in Expo 2020 Dubai’s ‘Programme for People and Planet’. The AKDN’s wide-ranging partnership with Expo is founded on “a shared commitment and recognition that the most pressing challenges facing humanity can best be addressed through cultural, social, environmental and economic initiatives”, the network said. Michael Kocher, General Manager, Aga Khan Foundation, said: “[The UAE] and the [AKDN] have worked closely together for many years in areas of common interest, including architecture, culture, education and healthcare. The AKDN’s collaboration with Expo 2020 Dubai is a reflection of this abiding partnership, which is founded upon a shared commitment to addressing key concerns relating to human development, to improve the quality of life of the world’s most vulnerable populations.” The AKDN has also contributed to Expo’s ‘Theme Weeks’ on Climate and Biodiversity, Tolerance and Inclusivity, and Knowledge and Learning.
