Dalberg Global Development Advisors is a consultancy firm based in New York.[1] Founded in 2001, the company specializes in global development and globalization and has coordinated several public-private partnerships.



Dalberg was founded in October 2001 by Henrik Skovby and Søren Peter Andreasen to bring consultants from the private sector to international development organizations. It now has eight offices worldwide. Dalberg's clients include corporations and national governments operating in emerging and developing markets and it has worked on over 400 projects in 75 countries.

Projects include studies for the United Nations, World Bank and the President of Liberia. In 2007, Dalberg collaborated with the Financial Times and the United Nations Global Compact to provide an assessment of the quality of NGOs and the United Nations' agencies that have established working relationships with private-sector companies.[2][3][4]

Dalberg presents the annual I-Qube Award that recognizes innovation, impact, and inspiration in the development field.[5]


Dalberg has advised investment funds for organizations and governments in Asia and Africa, including investments in wind energy projects in the People's Republic of China and geothermal energy plants in Indonesia. Dalberg recommended energy-sector reforms to the Government of Montenegro, and advised a U.S. think-tank on the energy markets in Pakistan and the Middle East.

In Tanzania, Dalberg is advising on strategies to meet Millennium Development Goals energy targets by 2012.[6] A new drug, known as the Artemisinin-based combination therapies (ACTs), was available to combat malaria, but was largely inaccessible to the masses because of cost and distribution challenges.[7] The World Bank commissioned Dalberg to design a mechanism to reduce the cost of ACTs.[8] In November 2007, the design for the Affordable Medicines Facility – malaria (AMFm) was approved by the Roll Back Malaria (RBM) Partnership Board[9]. Other projects in this sector have included designing initiatives to support people with chronic diseases in developing countries and advising pharmaceutical companies in Venezuela on profitable growth.

In 2006-2007, the President of Liberia, Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, asked Dalberg to study poverty reduction. Dalberg presented Sirleaf and the Liberian Cabinet case studies of similar African countries such as Rwanda and Mozambique and highlighted the potential trade-offs that Liberia had to make to overhaul of its economy in the wake of the second civil war.[10]

Dalberg is a founding members of the Aspen Network for Development Entrepreneurs which is supported by the Aspen Institute.[11] Other projects include reviewing governance and oversight of the United Nations, evaluating universal education initiatives in Georgia, and designing reform for the African Development Bank. Dalberg has also worked with financing small and medium enterprises in Bolivia and Indonesia.
