Idea behind the Arab Date Festivals:

Organizing date festivals in date producing areas, in the Arab countries, is mainly based on the Award’s vision, which considers the improvement of job opportunities and living standards of date producing families. Where to achieve this vision, the Award’s General Secretariat coordinates with the concerned ministries and investors in the date-producing countries, to develop the date palm cultivation infrastructure, and improve living areas of date producing families, through establishing multiple development projects, such as refrigerated date stores, and guiding farmers on how to produce organic dates according to internationally recognized standards, without undermining natural resources, which contributes to expanding the scope of communication, and the availability of Arab dates in the global markets. As a result, the Award gained a significant role in achieving the sustainable development goals 1 - The Eradication of poverty, and the sustainable development goal 2 - The Eradication of hunger.

Goals 1 and 2 (To End Poverty) and (To End Hunger):

The Award’s general secretariat worked for several years to host date palm farmers from various date producing countries, within the date festivals and exhibitions it organized in several Arab countries, with the aim of providing an opportunity for small farmers and date producers in the Arab region to participate in festivals and date exhibitions in order to exchange experiences between farmers from date-producing and processing countries, and to provide the opportunity to export Arab dates to various countries across the world, through direct communication with international date trading organizations, hosted by the Award in Each exhibition, and this, in turn, has a direct result on the improvement of the Arab dates reputation internationally, and thus the increase in global demand for Arab dates, which what has been highlighted in official statements by senior officials in this sector in the Arab countries.

The Award also worked to improve the quality of Arab dates to be in line with the requirements of the international markets, by supporting and rehabilitating more than 200 date palm farms in Siwa Oasis in the Arab Republic of Egypt to obtain an organic farming certificate for dates (Ecocert) accredited by the European Union, which in turn contributed to enhancing the competitiveness of Arab dates, with other international dates. This all contributed to improving the income level of the small farmers, and even eliminating hunger and poverty among the farmers and date producers in the Arab countries.

Goal 8 (Appropriate work and Economic growth):

The Arab dates exhibitions and festivals held, (more than 16 festivals and exhibitions in six countries), contributed to enabling a wide commercial activity of date palm growers, producers and processors in the Arab countries, by promoting comprehensive, diversified and productive rural economies that creates decent job opportunities and increases the income. This has been implemented in Siwa Oasis in the Arab Republic of Egypt, where the International Festival of Egyptian Dates in Siwa, which took place for four consecutive years (2015-2018), and contributed to improving the lifestyle and increasing the productivity capacities. It also led to an increase in the number of date packaging factories, where this is supported by a number of performance indicators, for example, the Egyptian date exports increased during the festival’s organization period to 17%, while the amount of dates imported from outside the country decreased by about 25%. This indicates the contribution of the Award's activities and events to increasing the economic growth of the date palm cultivation sector in order to achieve sustainable development for agricultural communities. As the Award has extensive knowledge, experience, and high-level partnerships with international organizations that it relies on to support the development of value chains of the Arab dates.

Goal 13 (Climate Effects) And Goal 15 - (life on earth):

The Award’s projects at the regional and international levels, had a direct positive impact on the development of the agricultural sector in general and the date palm cultivation in particular in the date producing countries, as it directly contributing to enhancing climate awareness for workers in this sector. The Award’s investment in sustainable farming methods in date-producing countries, by encouraging farmers and dedicating traditional farming patterns, contributed to better preserving of the natural resources, and increasing the ability of cultural agricultural systems to adapt to climate change. This also contributed to achieve Sustainable Development Goal13 (Climate Effects) and goal 15 (Life on Earth).
