What is a national crisis and how can it be turned into an opportunity?
Listen to ‘Don’t lose a good crisis’, an episode of the Asian Aspiration podcast that looks at how Africa’s leaders have to adopt a similar sense of urgency as Asia does, if they are to ensure that their countries not only survive but prosper in the face of the huge demographic changes they face.
The Asian Aspiration: Why and How Africa Should Emulate Asia by Greg Mills, Olusegun Obasanjo, Hailemariam Desaleng and Emily van der Merwe is out now from Pan Macmillan.
The book chronicles the untold stories of explosive growth and changing fortunes: the leaders, events and policy choices that lifted a billion people out of abject poverty within a single generation, the largest such shift in human history.

The podcast includes interviews with former Prime Minister of Ethiopia and co-author Hailemariam Desalegn, and Zimbabwe’s opposition leaders Nelson Chamisa and Tendai Biti, who know more than most about crisis, as the presenters explore how what might appear a disaster can be an opportunity for Africa’s development.
