  1. Mr. Abyd Karmali was among the first AKF-ISP recipients, allowing him to join the very prestigious and trail-breaking program at MIT. It is wonderful to see his substantive achievements and contributions – UNEP, ICF, and leading global financial institutions, as well as service within the Ismaili community’s social governance structures (Washington DC, then Council for Canada) and more recently with FOCUS, the exemplary humanitarian relief agency of the Aga Khan Development Network (making positive impacts on individuals and societies without regard to faith, origin or gender).

    Complimenting his various listed leadership roles, Mr. Karmali is also Chairman of the Board for Just Energy. Just Energy, based in South Africa, was founded by OXFAM and allows for low-income communities to enable renewable energy enterprises as a means of providing new revenue and local employment opportunities: http://just-energy.org/

    In the world of financial engineering in the fight against climate change, Mr. Karmali’s work is legendary. Of note was his recognition at the 2008 Environmental Finance awards: http://www.ml.com/media/108192.pdf
