Africa investor (Ai) today confirmed Hubert Danso, its CEO and Chairman and the Chairman of the African Union Development Agency Continental Business Network (CBN), has been appointed to the UNDP high-level Project Steering Committee, that will be advising on the development of the South Africa Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Investor Map.
The UNDP South Africa office convened the high-level Project Steering Committee on the SDG Investor Map, to support President Ramaphosa’s initiatives to attract foreign and domestic investment that’s aligned to the SDG’s from institutional investors, corporations and foundations.
The SDG Investor Map is a dynamic tool containing a range of market-specific investment opportunities for SDG-aligned capital deployment. The Steering Committee’s role is to provide strategic guidance and oversight in the research and development of the SDG Investment Map.
Speaking on his appointment Mr Danso said, “I’m delighted to be able to serve on such an important UN Committee, with such accomplished fellow committee members and under the able leadership of UNDP Resident Representative Mr Ayodele Odusola”.
Mr Danso went on to say, “the SDG Investor Map will be an integral tool to unlock private sector finance not only in South Africa, but represents a model that can be tailored country-by-country and successfully applied across the rest of the African continent.”
The UNDP envisions the launch of the SDG Investor Map in South Africa, to be an integral part of global sustainable financing initiatives and a powerful tool to accelerate private finance and investment in pursuit of the attainment of the 17 SDGs.
