Arab Islamic Summit Calls On Hans Hassle For Vertical Urban Agriculture Solution For The MENA Region At Dushanbe May 20th 2013

DUSHANBE, Tajikistan, May 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --



Plantagon International AB - the Swedish vertical agriculture innovation company headed by Hans Hassle speaks at the technical forum jointly organized by The International Center for Biosaline Agriculture (ICBA) and the Islamic Development Bank (IDB) on "Innovations for Agriculture and Food Security" that will be held on 20 May 2013 in Dushanbe, Tajikistan. This event presents a great opportunity for the Arab Islamic financial decision makers (ministers and central bank governors) of over 50 countries to learn more about the importance of urban agriculture solutions to prevent future food security crisis.

Plantagon, founded by Hans Hassle and Chief Oren Lyons of the Iroquois Confederacy, Onondaga Nation is structured on Mr Hassle's model named "Companization". The idea is to merge one non-profit and one for-profit organization, making them dependent of each other, thereby making it impossible for the company to act irresponsibly to these two documents. 

Plantagon is objectively seeking food solutions that can feed the growing population of world cities whilst minimizing the strain on transportation and pollution effects on vegetables & fruits in the city. To know more please visit http://www.feedingthecity.com

Plantagon works to bring together the triple helix comprising of global research, international business acumen and government support to work together in solving this Global Food Security issue. To act on this issue, Global Urban Agriculture Association and the 101 Cities Network has been commissioned with the sole purpose of bringing together practical food solutions.

Plantagon has research tie-ups with Linköping University, Nanyang Technological University in Singapore and Tongji University in Shanghai, China in which we are seeking global partners that can support and help solve this global food crisis. A food security plan consultancy program has been developed to understand city infrastructure levels leading to enhanced food production and transportation systems by Plantagon.

The Dushanbe summit brings together World Leaders in space of Agricultural Sustainability such as Jeffery Sachs, Demba Ba, Changhoo Chun and Hans Hassle

"The Arab Islamic world has always survived harsh terrain and living conditions being true examples of how man has adopted the laws of mother nature. Plantagon now brings this region an innovation that can revolutionize the food production systems in such natural conditions, says Hans Hassle, CEO Plantagon."
