Commitment to Action

Dedicating Sport Development to Food Security

Commitment by

Qatar 2022 Supreme Committee

In 2013, The Qatar 2022 Supreme Committee (Q22), in partnership with the Qatar National Food Security Programme (QNFSP), committed to utilizing its research and development for sustainable infrastructure at the 2022 FIFA World Cup to improve food security in Qatar, the Middle East, and other arid and water-stressed regions throughout the world. Q22 and QNFSP will build on their carbon-neutral stadium prototype, successfully built in 2010, that can be cooled in the environmental conditions of the Middle East with sustainable technology. Through this commitment they seek to prove the effectiveness and affordability of using both solar-powered hybrid cooling applications and converted football training facilities as housing for high-efficiency greenhouse food production in humid climates. If successful, the application of this innovative technology will allow for year-round food production and will enable farmers to increase the quality, consistency, and productivity of crops while decreasing the amount of water and energy consumed by agricultural production.
