WIEF POWERTALK : Diving into the Deep Blue - Possibilities for Islamic Fintech
To have a better understanding of the blue economy as one of the Islamic capital market fund raising instruments. Creating the blue sukuk will not only help to ensure protection and sustainable use of oceans through investment in the blue economy, but also help to build ocean resilience. Although relatively new, it has created much interest in blue financing which is needed for coastal areas that rely heavily on the ocean for food security, tourism and livelihoods. This session will also explore into the overall role of Islamic fintech landscape that can play a vital role in assisting this sustainable agenda as well as identifying opportunities that can support the SDGs.

The session will explore:

• To describe blue sukuk, SDG financing agenda, blended marketing, climate finance and blue/green financing and how to fully utilise their benefits, to achieve most desirable outcome, for businesses and the environment.
• To explain the relevance of Islamic fintech and the embodiment of shariah in blue and green SRI as well as sustainable investing, and its benefits and challenges.
• To assess funding infrastructure for sustainable development, both on livelihoods and marine biodiversity as well as its correlation with Islamic finance.
• To discuss ways to leverage on innovative Islamic fintech as a tool in safeguarding the environment.
