We work for sustainable development.
In 2015 the UN designed 17 goals to identify and address some of the greatest global challenges of our time. Agenda 2030 and the sustainable development goals highlight the need for global action and cooperation to address poverty, inequality, peace and conflict, protecting the planet and managing our resources in the face of climate change. It is becoming harder and harder to ignore the voices across the world asking for change. Public-private development cooperation partnerships are key to producing tangible financial and technical inputs designed with integrated holistic, multidimensional and collaborative approaches to tackle global development challenges.
Our purpose is to partner with governments and international development organisations to design and implement development projects, using our technical and project management expertise to create real impact on the ground, incorporating multidimensional and cross-cutting approaches to reach all of society and creating the most sustainable change possible.
FCG is committed to inclusive, participatory, and sustainable change. We have supported governments and international organisations in developing and delivering international development initiatives, facilitating economic growth and social progress for over 50 years. We strive to promote inclusive business and strengthen market driven transformation by identifying the underlying constraints facing poor and disadvantaged communities. Decades of experience and the technical expertise and knowledge of our staff and associates have given us a deep understanding of the local context and the functioning of societies in complex environments. Our services combine unique and diverse expertise in agriculture, rural development, climate change, environment, energy, water and sanitation, natural resources management, governance, public administration, civil society, education and private sector and trade development.
FCG works with public and private actors, capacity building and incorporating essential cross-cutting approaches, such as human rights, social inclusion and gender equality, into all of our projects.
Our technical assistance covers the entire project cycle, including project identification, design and preparation, appraisal, reviews and long-term implementation projects all over the world. Project monitoring and evaluation and fund management are important parts of our services. We work with bilateral development financiers such as the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland, the Swedish International Development Agency (Sida), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade of New Zealand, GIZ, the Danish International Development Agency (DANIDA), the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (NORAD), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Netherlands and many more. We also work with multilateral financiers such as the European Commission, European Investment Bank, the Asian Development Bank and World Bank, and the United Nations.
With an extensive international network of experts, as well as our country and regional presence through our global offices in Finland, Sweden, Singapore, New Zealand, Germany, Bulgaria and Kenya, we are able to pursue direct partnership and close collaboration with clients and partners and increase our understanding of regional and local contexts. For instance, the Singapore hub allows FCG to work closely with our existing and new clients in Asia and stay ahead of business opportunities in this rapidly developing region. The Kenya office is closely networked with many countries in Africa, supporting a wide range of development projects in the region.
