Building intellectual capital to support the process of development

Our work

Amaltas was set up in December 2006 to develop intellectual capital and innovative approaches for development. Registered as a privately held company, Amaltas Consulting Private Limited is named after the glorious Indian laburnum that is ubiquitous in the region.

Our three verticals: Amaltas Consulting, The Research Group and Springbox have implemented a portfolio of more than 40 projects which span such areas as health, women’s health, social development, inclusion of sexual minorities, water and sanitation and research quality. We work with UN bodies, the World Bank, IDRC, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation among others. We support countries and states in South and East Asia to generate innovative strategies to reduce poverty and inequities. Amaltas helps governments and donors to monitor performance and assess the impact of their work. We collaborate with corporate and NGO partners to establish a strong network of development actors who can move the development agenda forward.

Our work has had substantial impact on policy and strategies of organizations and countries. Work carried out under the Rural Water Supply and Sanitation program of Cambodia has led to the adoption of an Amaltas-developed monitoring system for progress tracking. Apart from representing the work done by India on HIV and AIDS prevention to the UN General Assembly Special Session, applications written by us have also yielded substantive funding from multilateral donor organizations to the Government of India. Our research and documentation on inclusion of the sexual minorities has found attention from communities in other countries, as well as the National Human Rights Commission of India. Partnership with IDRC has led to greater understanding of the meaning of 'research excellence' and is informing the establishment of their systems to measure the quality of research for development funded by them.
