    By Future Loans

    Published Nov 4, 2020 

    Project Financing For Oil and Gas Companies/IndustriesMuch debate has been ongoing in recent years in the oil and gas industry, especially after the major environmental disasters that the oil and gas industry has played a part in. The oil and gas companies are facing many difficult situations, predominately with sustainability pressures and cost and investment concerns, which are forcing more scrutiny towards the oil and gas industry, as well as dealing with the many transitions that are vital to staying successful in this complicated industry. The oil and gas industry is considered one of the biggest industries in the world today (in terms of dollar value), which means the oil and gas industry typically contributes a significant amount towards the national Gross Domestic Product. The oil and gas industry is often considered a global powerhouse, reinforcing the vital role they have, and continue to play, in the world today. The oil and gas industry also is the leading industry in employment, employing over 173 thousand people, as of November 2016, in the United States alone – if we consider this number globally, it is upwards of a couple million people...

    Call for Nominees for the 2019 Maize Youth Innovators Awards – Africa

    Nominations are now open for the 2019 MAIZE Youth Innovators Awards – Africa! These awards are part of the efforts that the CGIAR Research Program on Maize (MAIZE) is undertaking to promote youth participation in maize based agri-food systems. These awards recognize the contributions of young women and men below 35 years of age who are implementing innovations in African maize-based agri-food systems, including research-for-development, seed systems, agribusiness, and sustainable intensification.

    Young people are the key to ensuring a food-secure future and agricultural sustainability. However, rural youth face many challenges related to unemployment, underemployment and poverty. According to the FAO, facilitating young people’s participation in agriculture has the potential to drive widespread rural poverty reduction among young people and adults alike. In Africa, where over 300 million smallholder-farming families grow and consume maize as a staple crop, the human population stands at 1.2 billion people, 60 percent of whom are below the age of 25.

    Applications should be submitted via the online Application Form by March 15, 2019.
