Our services

The management of change and client orientation is at the heart of our services. We continuously develop and integrate new types of services into our service landscape. We analyse carefully the needs and market developments of our clients. Our tailor-made services support our clients in addressing the most urgent problems in the world: bringing poverty in all forms to an end, resolving conflicts and safeguarding peace, fighting inequalities to leave no one behind, and mitigating and adapting to climate change. Result-based management and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) are two important conceptual frameworks guiding all our services. The competences and capabilities of our inter- and multidisciplinary teams cover the whole programme/project life cycle and address all SDGs.

Our services are multi-dimensional and organized along two perspectives: Firstly, a thematic and sectoral perspective, secondly, a cross-cutting perspective.
