Ahunna Eziakonwa on SDG Acceleration in Africa

Isn’t it cool that we live in a world where humanity is being inspired to get together around highly ambitious goals that are universal? A set of goals whose existence is to enable people, planet and prosperity - these are the Sustainable Development Goals. Ahunna Eziakonwa from the United Nations Development Programme, joins Nwabisa In Conversation with the Branson Centre to discuss how opportunities to accelerate against the SDGs in Africa ignite her purpose.

Ahunna leads the UNDP’s work supporting 46 countries in Africa to achieve Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals. Ahunna is a passionate advocate for enabling people in Africa to live in peace and prosperity.

During this conversation, Ahunna will challenge you to “flip the script!” when it comes to harnessing the power of home-grown innovation in Africa. She dares us to make moves towards securing a future for thriving people who live in a sustainable environment whilst enjoying shared prosperity.

Ahunna represents changemakers who insist on living in a more equal and inclusive world. We are convinced that many of these changemakers are entrepreneurs. Do you agree with us? Are you one of these changemakers?
