We provide entrepreneurial solutions to intractable social and economic development challenges in cities.

We work with city governments, foundations, non-profits, and businesses to shape the future of their cities. We provide planning, research, program design, and advisory services that help cities become engines of economic growth, sources of innovation and places of job creation. We specialize in creating more sustainable and inclusive growth in rapidly growing cities of emerging markets and meeting the targets of the UN Sustainable Development Goal #11.

We focus on inclusive, comprehensive, and long-term development solutions that tackle issues ranging from chronic poverty to climate change adaptation. To achieve this, we provide multi-disciplinary expertise — economics, engineering, planning, design and business — to deliver integrated solutions that provide enduring development outcomes.

Our major areas of expertise include:

  • Infrastructure and Urban Planning
  • Economic Development
  • Disaster Risk Reduction and Management
  • Urban Poverty Reduction
  • Climate Change Adaptation and Resilience

Good Citizenship is Good Business

We help the private sector become a powerful force for good by helping companies design and implement development projects in their home communities on issues of concern. Similarly, we help international development organizations partner with companies so they can solve development challenges by harnessing their collective resources, creativity and entrepreneurship. Contact us to learn more about advisory services.
