IBI provides economic development
consulting services to improve people's lives
IBI's work in Africa spans the entire continent. Africa is the core geographic focus of our work. Sub-Saharan Africa is IBI’s core geographic area of expertise. Our principals have been working in Africa for more than 30 years. We have a vast network of top-quality local consultants. We have successfully implemented projects in nearly every country in the region, with a particular focus on West Africa
ASIA & THE MIDDLE EAST
From Morocco to Malaysia, IBI has helped to address issues related to small and medium sized enterprise development, tourism and trade. IBI has implemented projects on gender mainstreaming, tourism industry development, trade, coastal zone planning, and small- and medium-size enterprise development in Asia and the Middle East. IBI’s International Leadership Center has been invited by the governments of Malaysia, Thailand, and Indonesia to provide specialized management courses.
IBI has trained hundreds of students and professionals from Central and South America on how to be better managers. IBI has evaluated capacity building efforts to improve competitiveness in the Andean region, as well as the Peru Micro and Small Enterprise Facilitation Program. We also implemented a 5-year project to provide publications, editing, and graphic support services to USAID’s Bureau for Program and Policy Coordination.
EUROPE & EURASIA
IBI has assisted governments on policy and sharpened management skills throughout Eastern Europe and Eurasia. IBI has worked in Ukraine on agricultural policy and in Kosovo on economic growth. We worked in Moldova to assist rural communities with capacity building and development planning. Via IBI’s merger with the Management for Training and Development Institute (MTDI), we have trained hundreds of students from Europe and Eurasia on management and leadership.
