AREAS OF EXPERTISE
Dalberg Advisors is a strategic advisory firm which brings the best of private sector strategy skills and rigorous analytical capabilities with deep knowledge and networks across emerging and frontier markets. We work collaboratively across the public, private and philanthropic sectors to fuel inclusive growth and help clients achieve their goals.
Our global perspectives are firmly rooted in local realities. We have 17 offices across the world and have served clients in more than 90 countries. By combining local roots and extensive international experience, our strategies blend the best global ideas and innovations with the local practicalities and partnerships needed for effective implementation.
Gender inequality undermines economic growth, democracy, and human dignity. By shifting social norms, removing legal barriers, and reducing discriminatory practices, countries can empower citizens and achieve remarkable progress. Dalberg works with governments, foundations, NGOs, and companies to empower people of all genders and socioeconomic backgrounds to participate fully in economic, political, and social life.
Conflict, Security, Humanitarian Aid
Conflicts, acute crises, epidemics, and natural disasters affect hundreds of millions of people annually – and not enough is being done to address these humanitarian situations. Dalberg helps clients design effective strategies, establish new partnerships, identify innovative financing sources, and improve aid delivery for timely and effective humanitarian responses.
Technology is creating new jobs, lowering transaction costs, and delivering vital information to those who need it most. At Dalberg, we work with private companies, governments, leading foundations, NGOs, and civil society groups to harness digital technology for amplified impact, sustainable value, and cost reduction in sectors ranging from health to agriculture, from energy to financial services.
Inclusive Economic Development
We need inclusive economies that provide economic opportunities for all and allow current – and future – citizens to flourish. Dalberg helps countries and regions develop inclusive growth agendas and programs where all people can benefit from, and participate in, economic growth.
Sustainable infrastructure has the power to bolster the economic growth, resilience, health, and environments of entire nations. We support our clients – governments, private investors, institutions – to develop inclusive and sustainable infrastructure in emerging markets.
Investing for Development
Capital flows to the developing world are outpacing traditional sources of development finance, and investors in emerging and frontier markets are increasingly looking for opportunities that deliver on social impact or sustainability objectives. We provide a range of services related to the design and formation of investment funds and financing facilities.
Water and Sanitation
Water is a vital resource for life, but a full 650 million people lack clean drinking water and 1 billion practice open defecation. Dalberg works with governments, NGOs, businesses, and foundations to develop solutions that address the infrastructural, behavioral, and policy roots of complex, water-related problems.
Leadership and Talent
Cultivating leadership is vital in the development space as leaders often operate in environments where resources are scarce, stakeholder complexity is high, goals are multi-dimensional, impact is hard to define and incentives are often misaligned. At Dalberg, we believe investment into leaders can be a force multiplier.
