Working across a variety of sectors – including Economic Growth, Environment & Infrastructure, Governance, Human Development, and Stabilization & Transition - we provide world class program management, design, analysis, and monitoring and evaluation services. 

Built on more than 50 years of experience from AECOM International Development, Development Transformations, and GPD Charitable Trust, DT Global is pioneering a new model of development that works in partnership with communities to deliver innovative, data-driven solutions that create sustainable change and improve people's lives. We intend to channel the majority of fees received from donor contracts back into our partner non-profit, DT Institute, to support innovative initiatives that test new ideas or expand on donor partner priorities.  With corporate offices in Washington D.C., Madrid, and Adelaide, the DT Global family represents a globally integrated service delivery platform with best-in-class technical expertise in delivering solutions across a broad range of sectors.

DT Global is recruiting for multiple positions for the anticipated Papua New Guinea (PNG) and Solomon Islands Forest Governance Program. The program will address the drivers of deforestation and forest degradation, unsustainable forest and land management, the lack of data to inform forest and land management decisions and the lack of data to inform forest and land management decision, and the lack of participatory land use planning and livelihood opportunities for forest-dependent communities.

•    Forest Law Enforcement & Governance Specialist 
•    Community Forest Management and Land Tenure Specialist
•    Private Sector Engagement Specialist 
•    Sustainable Financing Specialist 
•    Value Chain Specialist
