NCG has recently been awarded a contract regarding the Danida Market Development Partnerships Programme (DMDP). DMDP was launched in 2016 and is a business programme situated at the precompetitive end of the scale. The overall objective of the Danida Market Development Partnerships is to contribute to sustainable economic growth and employment in developing countries with a focus on the Sustainable Development Goal 8. This is done by promoting broad partnerships that combine knowledge and resources from different types of actors including private sector. The point of departure for a partnership project is a business idea driven by one or more private businesses, thus motivating and mobilizing private sector knowledge and investment in development. The business purpose must underpin the development objective and may contribute to several Sustainable Development Goals in addition to SDG 8.
NCG's team consists of Chief Consultant, Mikkel Klim, and consultant and managing director of NCG, Marie-Louise Appelquist.
