International development

Mott MacDonald is committed to improving people’s lives through creating and delivering tailored development solutions.

Whatever challenges our clients face, and wherever in the world they are located, we can deliver the right combination of expertise.

Pieter van Stuijvenberg

International Development Services Director, Mott MacDonald

We work in developing countries to support poverty alleviation, good governance, and to help increase access to basic services. We build capacity and resilience in healthcare, education, water, sanitation and provide world beating expertise in transportation, infrastructure and renewable energy – while safeguarding the environment, promoting human rights and gender equity, and fostering social and economic development.

We constantly stretch our thinking to seek out innovative, sustainable solutions for the world’s toughest challenges: population growth, urbanisation, food security, climate change and local/regional conflicts. At the start of every project, we search for the opportunity to add value in our designs and outcomes.

Our multidisciplinary teams of experts work in close collaboration with governments, NGOs and communities in two broad areas: strategic thinking and actual delivery of a project or programme.

We believe our solutions provide the best life chances for the present and future generations because we never lose sight of the people who should ultimately benefit from what we do.

In 2015/16 we worked on over 230 international development projects in more than 45 countries
