On March 6th 2023, Participation Banks Association of Türkiye (TKBB) and Green for South organized
a roundtable on climate finance. During the roundtable, Dr Ahmed Tahiri Jouti and Dr Wael
Mohamed Aaminou, Co-Founders and Managing Partners at Green For South Inc. delivered three
presentations. The first one was on the outcomes of the report titled ‘’Climate Finance Readiness
Index 2023: Middle East, North Africa & Türkiye Region’’. This annual report assesses the state of
climate finance for the MENA region & Türkiye and recommends policy interventions based on
international best practices and national contexts. The second and third presentations addressed the
topics of ESG frameworks and Greenhouse gases accounting methodologies through case studies and
global standards analysis. These presentations ended with a discussion on the opportunities and
challenges for developing the climate finance ecosystem and projects in Türkiye.
Further information on the roundtable can be found in the press release.

While living in the US, the 2008 financial crisis’ impact on the economy and people pushed me to question the purpose of my job as a financial consultant. I ultimately shifted gears to focus my advisory efforts on fostering a more ethical finance that puts the real economy, social welfare, and environment preservation at the center. With assignments in Northwestern Africa, Middle Eastern and Southeast Asian regions, this journey led me to challenge and shape Impact finance and Islamic finance ecosystems in as varied sectors as energy, healthcare, education, and agriculture.
Working in more than 10 countries has taught me that sustainable development challenges are complex, and that a viable solution would start by prioritizing efforts on most pressing issues when resources are limited. This is particularly true for climate change which transversally impacts virtually all SDGs. Today, as a sustainability finance advisor, I mobilize people and resources toward the adaptive challenge of building together the sustainable world that our children and planet deserve.
