The prince explained why, “In this part of the world, they are so challenging on water and everything else.

“Water, food and energy are critical areas here, as they are in many areas. But what investors, of course, like is scale.

“So we’re trying to look at how you can create a regional scale. So more countries together, which offers real opportunities for big investment. But not just in technology, but in nature-based solutions.

“And now there are an awful lot of very ingenious ideas that could be implemented.”

Speaking about his sustainable market initiative, he said: “To speed this up, we need to find – as I am trying to explain – the best ways to bring the public and private sectors together. The private sector with all the trillions that governments don’t really have.

“But governments that can play their part are, I think, things like first and second loss guarantees for risks, currency risk and things – sovereign risk – that are so difficult for so many companies and investors to deal with in some parts.

“So combining these things with real multinational development banks is critical.”
