Dalberg Data Insights to help bridge the data gaps in global development
A lack of robust data is often a critical barrier to crafting evidence-based policy, directing resources effectively and designing programs to tackle important development challenges. The newly launched Dalberg Data Insights brings together two experienced organizations – Data-for-Good of Real Impact Analytics and the Dalberg Group – to help address this data gap and leverage data for social good.
Dalberg Data Insights combines the analytical power of the team behind Data-for-Good of Real Impact Analytics with the vast global development experience of Dalberg – a group of impact-driven businesses. By unlocking rich data sources from private companies such as mobile phone operators and creating specialized analytics, Dalberg Data Insights allows organizations to better target, implement, and evaluate their programs and initiatives. Dalberg Data Insights will expand the team’s work combining state-of-the-art analytics and an outstanding track record in collaborating with large donor organizations.
“Over the past 7 years, we have built strong partnerships which provide us with access to huge real time data sets, and developed specialized analytical tools to accelerate the impact of development organizations across the globe. We look forward to expanding our reach as part of the Dalberg family,” said Alexis Eggermont, co-Managing Partner of Dalberg Data Insights.
Frederic Pivetta, co-Managing Partner of Dalberg Data Insights adds: “We are delighted to join forces with Dalberg. We will maintain our unique approach to creating social impact, while leveraging Dalberg’s extensive expertise and networks to explore new sectors, new big data sources and expand our global reach, while keeping a strong technology edge.”
From gender inequalities to population growth, there are striking data gaps in nearly every aspect of global development. More reliable data, and tools that allow us to make evidence-based decisions, are essential to building a more sustainable and inclusive world. Sebastien Deletaille, CEO of Real Impact Analytics, says that: “As tech entrepreneurs, we see immense potential in achieving SDGs with mobile phone data. By uniting the leading development consultancy with the leading data for good innovator, the ambition is to show a new way of applying the digital revolution to better societies.”
“We are thrilled for Alexis, Frederic, and the whole Dalberg Data Insights team to join us at Dalberg. There are many points of collaboration and intersection across Dalberg’s businesses and we look forward to integrating Dalberg Data Insight’s skills and knowledge to further our impact,” said James Mwangi, Executive Director of the Dalberg Group.
