AREAS OF EXPERTISE
We design, plan and execute events, convenings and conferences that engage diverse stakeholders in the global development agenda.
We work with partners to convene individuals and organizations from across the globe to collaborate on pressing issues and challenges.
We produce and create creative content in print and online, which amplifies messages and agendas important to the development sector. We do this with an eye to creative detail and with focus on positioning and disseminating content to targeted and impactful audiences.
We create and develop education materials, workshops, training and innovation processes to educate and empower young people to take action. We produce content, design processes, create innovation programs and communicate insights to advance knowledge and awareness about global development and sustainability.
We create communication strategies and convincing narratives to encourage people to act and to help partners convey important messages. Our offerings range from amplifying online reach to building online communities as well as using story-telling techniques to disseminate powerful stories.
We believe that the transition towards a more inclusive and sustainable world hinges on empowering the people living in it. As such, we rarely advise on the best solutions but create the platforms, initiatives and products that enable people to find solutions, develop them and bring them to life. By offering people the knowledge, tools and frameworks to act, we empower our clients and audiences to play an impactful and leading role in affecting action towards a sustainable future.

Big Bet Match-Up Meeting on Distributed Business Models
Rockefeller Foundation & the Observer Research Foundation, 2017

P4G Partnership Facilitation Program during the P4G Copenhagen Summit
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark, 2018
Dalberg Media conceptualized and executed a number of partnership acceleration workshops for +500 high-level multi stakeholders at the P4G Summit in Copenhagen in October 2018 focusing on water, food and agriculture, cities, energy and circular economy.
Dalberg Media makes a conscious and informed effort at limiting the global carbon footprint accruing from its operations. This includes efforts at minimising emissions on an ongoing basis by always considering climate friendly alternatives when available.
Since late 2018, Dalberg Media offsets all carbon emissions associated with air travel by investing in avoided deforestation and reforestation through the platform CarbonFund.
Dalberg Media purchases electricity from NaturEnergi, a utilities company investing exclusively in renewable energy, thereby ensuring net zero emissions from its electricity use, while supporting the local transition to a renewable energy supply.
We recognise that offsetting travel and office operations does not encapsulate the entirety of CO2 emissions originating from our work. Production of computers and other hardware, heating, lunch etc. is not currently accounted for. As we mature our approach to offsetting, we aspire to factor this in – not only to become carbon neutral, but also to create a surplus.
