Jeffrey Sachs' Millennium Villages to expand with £67m loan

Jeffrey Sachs' Millennium Villages to expand with £67m loan

<p>The Islamic Development Bank (IsDB) is to provide $104m (&pound;67.3m) in loans to African governments to fund an expansion of Millennium Villages, the controversial project led by Jeffrey Sachs, director of Columbia University's Earth Institute. About $40m of the money will go towards a flagship sustainable villages programme (SVP) in Chad, Mozambique, and Sudan. In addition, $29m will support the extension of existing Millennium Village projects (MVPs) in Mali, Senegal and Uganda, while $35m will be used for a drylands initiative in Djibouti, Somalia and Uganda. Governments will team up with the IsDB, the Earth Institute, and its partner, Millennium Promise, to carry out the projects. The Millennium Village project covers more than 500,000 people in 14 areas of 10 countries in different environments across Africa. Each site was considered a "hunger hot-spot" at the time the project began in 2006. The concept works on the principle of interventions across several key areas &ndash; health, education, enterprise and agriculture &ndash; over a 10-year period.</p>

IDB gives Pakistan 250m euro

<p>Pakistan will reportedly receive 250 million Euros from the Islamic Development Bank (IDB) in the ongoing month of August, which is part of 750 million Euros loan. Similarly, the country will also avail the trade facility of $150 million for import of fertilizer and Petroleum products this month. The Islamic Development Bank had agreed to the loan and the trade facility in a meeting between the President of the Islamic Development Bank, Dr. Ahmed Muhammad Ali, and Pakistan&rsquo;s Finance Minister Senator Ishaq Dar in Jeddah last week. Pakistan will also receive $500 million from Asian Development Bank and $500 million from World Bank in the second half (January-June) of the ongoing financial year 2013-14. Moreover, Pakistan is expecting to receive $3.4 billion from IMF during the current financial year.

Power: FG seeks $450m from Islamic Development Bank

Power: FG seeks $450m from Islamic Development Bank

<p>The Federal Government of Nigeria has sought the support of the Islamic Development Bank for the provision of about $450m to expand the power transmission system to wheel up to 20,000 megawatts of electricity. According to Vice-President Namadi Sambo, more funds need to be injected in the transmission component. Sambo also called on the bank to consider the construction of a road linking Lagos to Abidjan, the capital of C&ocirc;te d&rsquo;Ivoire. Moreover, he requested the IDB to extend its support to the Nigerian private sector in the areas of education, aviation and agriculture. IDB has already approved the construction of four new science secondary schools in Kaduna State worth $17,9m; construction of a 300-bed specialist hospital in Kaduna State at $43.15m; and the Zaria water supply project worth $81.0m. Furthermore, the$32.40m Jigawa State rural development project and the bilingual education programme for Borno, Gombe and Niger states worth $30.53m are under consideration.</p>

Customers are driving force of Islamic banking

<p>Mohammed Obaidullah of the Islamic Development Bank highlighted the role of customers in strengthening Islamic banks and financial institutions by asking right questions and monitoring the bank&rsquo;s activities and dealings. The customer is the driving force who can make Islamic banking move, he said while giving a lecture on the relevance of Islamic banking and finance in the modern world at the Islamic Education Foundation. Obaidullah called for the establishment of independent Shariah bodies to monitor and approve the activities of Islamic Banks. Moreover, Islamic banking and finance have become a strong industry that will not be shaken by defaulting of some institutions or individuals, he added emphasizing the importance of taking protective regulatory measures. Obaidullah hoped that India would soon get on the bandwagon of Islamic banking since the country could get the much-needed funds available in GCC countries for its infrastructure projects.</p>
