Services and Expertise
Access to Finance
Dalberg's expertise in finance, coupled with our knowledge of development and difficult-to-serve markets, allows us to use our global network of investors and entrepreneurs to grow businesses and improve economic development.
Dalberg recognizes the strategic importance of agriculture – and the economic stability and opportunity a healthy industry creates – in developing countries. We work with clients across the global agriculture sector to identify, design and implement solutions that add value to market participants, from the smallholder farmer to the global retailer. Our clients include foundations, operational and advocacy NGOs, and national governments active in investing and growing agricultural markets across multiple geographies – particularly, in recent work, Africa.
Conflict, human rights, and humanitarian aid
We help our clients to develop sound strategy, optimize performance, measure the impact of their efforts, locate like-minded partners, and access new sources of funding. As a result of our work, our clients are able to enhance their strategies and capabilities to respond to some of the world's most pressing and complex humanitarian challenges.
Dalberg helps corporations achieve lasting competitive advantage in developing markets. We work with corporate leaders to ensure that they understand the commercial, social and political conditions affecting their opportunities in these markets. We stay with our clients as they engage with partners in government, civil society and local business.
