African Influencers For Development 



Click on the map to see the prototype of this unique tool:

UNDP Africa is developing a comprehensive tool to map businesses and startups across the continent that are contributing to the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Currently at prototype stage and covering 100 companies in each of 5 countries, the map showcases some of the most innovative small, medium and large ventures across a wide range of sectors and regions which through their approaches to business could have a potentially transformative impact on the SDGs. The pilot is a demonstrator that explores how companies through their actions or business model can either affect or be positively influenced by the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

From a women-led coffee company in Ethiopia to a clean water pioneer in Nigeria, the Africa Business Map will also enable potential investors or partners to identify companies on the continent that are either influencing or are influenced by the SDGs in the way they approach their business.
