IFC, Kobo360 to tackle food, energy waste

International Finance Corporation (IFC), a member of the World Bank Group, in partnership with an African digital logistics platform, Kobo360, has called on innovators from around the world to bring climate-smart, temperature-controlled logistics (TCL) cooling solutions to Nigeria to help the country address food waste; support its health sector and reduce its energy consumption.

Through TechEmerge Temperature-Controlled Logistics Nigeria programme, it wants to offer market access and a pool of up to $1 million in funding to top innovators matched with Nigerian companies to jointly pilot sustainable solutions that will reduce losses in cold chains, strengthen access to TCL-dependent products/markets and build commercial partnerships.

The programme is being implemented by IFC in partnership with the UK Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and Kobo360, an African e-logistics platform.
