Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen,

I would like to congratulate the Nation Media Group on holding this fourth edition of the global award-winning Kusi Ideas Festival.

Since it was founded by His Highness the Aga Khan in 1959, during the struggle for independence and Pan-Africanism, the Group’s path has been closely entwined with the history of Kenya, of East Africa and of the African continent.

First and foremost, I want to applaud everyone who participated in the President’s challenge for climate solutions.

Climate change is a subject that we hear about constantly. It is on the front page of newspapers. It is the subject of films, television shows and books. It is discussed by world leaders at high-profile events and by millions of people on social media. Yet the volume of attention still exceeds the appetite for action.

Despite all the hype, the UN-sponsored world summit on sustainable development in South Africa in August could not introduce any real constraints because they would have meant re-examining globalisation. So could sustainable development just be a pretext for maintaining a growth that must be, by nature, destructive to the environment?

Shortly after his arrival in Houston yesterday, Prince Amyn met with Houston Mayor, the Honorable Sylvester Turner at City Hall. During their meeting, the Mayor bestowed Prince Amyn with an Honorary Citizenship of the City of Houston.

Prince Amyn is in Houston to review progress on the construction of the Ismaili Center, Houston — a new building incorporating spaces for social and cultural gathering, intellectual engagement, reflection, and spiritual contemplation being built by the Ismaili Community across from Buffalo Bayou Park in the heart of Houston.

Thank you very much.

Like you, dear Mayor, dear friends, I am amazed by the film that we just saw. I don’t know how it was made. My worry is that people who saw it would think that the building was already there. And when they finally see the building in a year and a bit, they will say “where have all the yellow flowers gone?” They were so pretty (laughter)

Dear Friends

Today's gathering is a remarkable event. It brings together people from the many parts of Tajikistan, a country that, though small, has a rich and challenging diversity. It brings together representatives of a variety of neighboring and distant countries that wish well to the people of Tajikistan. It brings together religious and secular leaders deeply concerned with the future of Tajikistan’s people.

Thank you so much

As I have done my work, over the past decades, I’ve concluded that one of the most important forces in development is civil society. If you think about the countries around the world which have had fragile governments but which have still made progress, there are umpteen examples of countries which have made progress, because they have had strong civil society.
