How Can Technology support the achievement of SDGs in Ghana?
Accra, Ghana – October 12th – RSVP Now
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), otherwise known as the Global Goals, are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.
In order to eradicate poverty and reorient current unsustainable development trajectories over the period 2015 to 2030, affordable technological solutions have to be developed and disseminated widely in the next fifteen years.
In Ghana, the National Development Planning Commission is the state agency tasked with the incorporation of the SDGs into the national development agenda (Ghana Shared Growth and Development Agenda GSGDA II- 2014-2017). How has the NDPC fared with incorporating technology into achieving the goals?
The next Accra Technology Salon, will host key stakeholders from the NDPC, civil society and technologists on how Ghana can make use of technology to help achieve the goals by 2030.
Please RSVP now to join the next Accra Tech Salon with thought leaders including:
- Dr. Esther Offei-Aboagye of NDPC
• Dickens Thunde of World Vision International
• Omar Seidu of Ghana Statistical Services
Please RSVP now to join the discussion as we explore issues like:
- Where is Ghana now with SDGs implementation?
- How can we explore tech use in achieving SDGs?
- What is the case elsewhere with tech in SDGs
- What is the role of tech in implementing and monitoring SDGs?
- Technology for development, the way forward for Ghana
We’ll have hot coffee and catered breakfast treats for a morning rush, but seating is limited. Once we reach our 30-person capacity there will be a waiting list!

About the Technology Salon
The Technology Salon™ is an intimate, informal, and in person, discussion between information and communication technology experts and international development professionals, with a focus on both:
• technology’s impact on donor-sponsored technical assistance delivery, and
• private enterprise driven economic development, facilitated by technology.
Our meetings are lively conversations, not boring presentations. Attendance is capped at 35 people – and frank participation with ideas, opinions, and predictions is actively encouraged.
It’s also a great opportunity to meet others motivated to employ technology to solve vexing development problems. Join us today!
