Alinea is a global international development consultancy.
We provide technical and management expertise that helps people improve their lives. We work with governments, investors, companies and communities to deliver lasting change. Over the past 30 years, we have managed more than 500 projects worldwide.

our approach

We firmly believe that for a development approach to have a lasting impact, partner-country stakeholders and beneficiaries must claim it as their own. This belief guides every step of our project management approach.

From beginning to end, our projects encourage participation and collaboration. We involve developing country partners at the outset of projects to define goals and indicators, and at regular intervals through progress reviews.

With offices in 20 countries across the Americas, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia we provide specialist support covering the principal areas of development opportunity.
