DT Global’s Environment & Infrastructure practice works with governments and communities to create livable communities and cities.
Sustainable energy, water, and climate solutions are a global imperative. Improved access to basic infrastructure – including power, water, sanitation, roads, and information and communication technology - is the catalyst for economic growth. To help communities overcome increasing pressure from climate change, urban and industrial growth, and deforestation, DT Global collaborates with stakeholders to develop innovative solutions that improve resiliency, accelerate access to safe water and sustainable sanitation, improve environmental management, promote clean energy solutions, and mainstream green economy solutions. Through locally-led initiatives grounded in data and quantitative analysis, we facilitate the development of improved policies and practices, strengthen stakeholder capacity, and create partnerships with the private sector and other stakeholders to bring innovation to scale.
Increasing economic development and unsustainable extraction in the Amazon is leading to the over-exploitation, contamination, and degradation of the region’s resources. Our Amazon Best Social and Environmental Practices Activity works to reduce the negative impact of large-scale infrastructure projects, extractive activities, and climate stress on Amazon forest and water resources by promoting the development and adoption of environmental and social best management practices.
Pacific Island Countries are experiencing the negative impacts of climate change, including rising sea levels, increasing frequency and intensity of drought, ocean acidification, and damage to coral reefs and fisheries.

Aus4Transport is an Australian Government initiative to support the Government of Vietnam in developing high-quality transport infrastructure to promote economic growth and poverty reduction.
