David South International Client Map | 2017

David South International (DSI) has offered consultancy services since 1991. This has included award-winning work in Asia and the United Kingdom, contributing to the UN winning the Nobel Peace Prize in 2001 and the UK's NHS winning the Childnet Award in 2003. Since 2006, DSI has been working with the UN on raising the profile of innovators in the global South, in particular Africa, and increasing awareness of innovation to address poverty and the global innovation agenda. The fruits of this work are considerable. From rescuing Mongolia from the "biggest peacetime economic collapse" in the late 1990s, to the design and mobile and information technology revolutions in international development from 2000 onwards.
