Welcome to IDG
IDG is a rapidly growing international development organization, serving the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC), and other international donors.
IDG’s Mission is to promote inclusive economic growth in developing countries, to alleviate world poverty. We work to reduce poverty around the world through sustainable, inclusive economic development. We provide evidence-driven, practical tools for policymakers and entrepreneurs to make a real and measurable impact for their communities and their countries. We build individual and institutional capacity in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors, fostering synergies between local knowledge and international experience.
Our areas of expertise include: public financial management; private-sector development and market systems; international trade policy and facilitation; monitoring, evaluation, and learning; financial sector; food security and agriculture; gender and inclusivity; and institutional support contracts. IDG has worked for USAID and other international donors for over 30 years, on more than 54 projects, in over 81 countries. We currently operate in 44 countries and have active field offices in North Macedonia, Moldova, Ukraine, Armenia, Sri Lanka, Barbados, and Bangladesh.
Mission-Driven: We focus on promoting inclusive economic growth in developing countries, to alleviate world poverty. Every person who works for IDG is committed to this core organizational mission.
Speak Truth to Power: For us, speaking truth to power means evidence-based development. We use analytical methods and evidence to figure out the truth of what is working and what is not working to advance development objectives, and then we plainly speak that truth to everyone—to our beneficiaries, to our clients, and to the general public.
