WBD’s international development practitioners have decades of field expertise in achieving internationally recognized sustainable development goals. We have implemented projects across four continents for the U.S. Agency for International Development, Millennium Challenge Corporation, International Trade Administration, and Development Finance Corporation. Our approach prioritizes building relationships with local governments, organizations, and private entities to realize far-reaching and sustainable results that continue long after a project ends.
We enable our clients to jointly address pressing development challenges ranging from food security, education, humanitarian relief, climate change, and gender equality issues to private sector engagement, supply chain management, capacity building, and democracy and governance projects.
We work across ten countries and four continents, delivering sustainable development outcomes and expanding economic growth opportunities for citizens. This has included Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning, and working with the United States Agency for International Development to further capacity building in developing countries. Ultimately, we effectively bridge the public and private sectors to enable our clients and partners to jointly address pressing development challenges.
