Since 1970, we have worked in more than 150 countries—delivering results across the spectrum of development contexts, from stable societies and high-growth economies to challenging environments racked by political or military conflict. At any one time we are likely to have active projects in 50 or more countries. This worldwide portfolio is supported from corporate headquarters in the United Kingdom and the United States.
Our U.K.-based team delivers results for bilateral and multilateral donors, governments and private sector clients worldwide, often in difficult environments racked by insecurity and conflict. We work hand in hand with our counterparts in government and the private sector to identify where international best practices can be usefully applied and best tailored to the local context.
From its earliest days as a start-up in 1970, DAI has maintained a presence in or near Washington, D.C. The three founders’ office was a tiny establishment in Georgetown. Today, our office in Bethesda, Maryland, just outside Washington, is home to some 350 employees.
