ABOUT DALBERG DATA INSIGHTS

At Dalberg Data Insights, we partner with public and private stakeholders to spark digital transformation and fill data gap across different verticals – namely (i) Agriculture and Food Security; (ii) Public Health; (iii) Gender and Financial Inclusions; (iv) Poverty Alleviation; and (v) Energy – by building local and inclusive data ecosystems. Our data ecosystem approach consists of developing data governance frameworks, data-driven technologies, as well as a community of users, contributors, developers, and administrators. Using our products and solutions, local and global communities can better target, implement, and evaluate their programs and initiatives.


For example, we have built data solutions that monitor crop yield for sorghum and maize in northern Uganda based on satellite images. The data products we created based on mobility insights from aggregated and anonymized telecom data, have helped track the spread of COVID19 in Belgium, Ebola in West Africa and Zika and Chikungunya in Brazil. We have used labour market data we capture and interpret to design and pilot a Labour Market Information System in Ethiopia.


Dalberg Data Insights is a platform for change. Our staff is empowered to start new programs, institute best practices, and develop traditions that will define the DDI’s experience for years to come. Innovation and entrepreneurship are not only valued at DDI, but they are also essential to our firm’s success.
