Agriculture and Food Security
Agriculture today accounts for 10 percent of the global economic output and provides livelihoods for more than 2 billion people in low and middle-income countries. We have worked on over 150 projects advocating, understanding, and helping solve problems facing agriculture actors at the international and local level.
Education to Employment
The global unemployment crisis demands innovative and comprehensive education and training solutions to respond to rapidly changing employment needs. Dalberg partners with educational institutions, corporations, foundations, NGOs, and governments to strengthen the education to employment pathway.
Meeting the growing demand for food, fresh water, energy, and other resources requires finding solutions at the intersection of human and natural systems. Our work recognizes the interdependency of human progress and the environment to protect the world’s most vulnerable people and ecosystems.
Inclusive Business Growth
We work with companies to reach the four billion people at the base of the pyramid (BoP) – a large and underserved market opportunity. By incorporating the BoP in business value chains, we help clients reach new markets and understand and identify new potential customers.
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.
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.
Access to affordable energy is a key development issue - which when addressed can lead to outsized impact and catalyze the development of many other services such as health, education, public services, etc. Although the efforts to increase global access to energy are expanding, we are still not on track to meet the SDG #7 - universal access to modern energy - by 2030.
