Delivering data and digital solutions for international development.
We build upon nearly two decades of technical expertise to develop tools, processes, and custom analyses to help partners achieve results. DG makes development data easier to gather, access, use, and understand.
We are an international nonprofit organization with nearly two decades of experience across more than 70 countries in the Americas, Africa, Asia, and Europe. Our clients and partners are key players in the data and international development space.
In each area, we use a combination of our tested methods in building digital technology tools, providing advisory services on data use, and applied research. We work to document our impact, capture lessons learned, and translate those lessons into relevant inputs to global policy discussions.
