The International Development Advisory Services Story



This document tells the story of IDAS in Africa. More specifically, it highlights the impact that we have achieved in delivering and managing innovative development programmes and projects across the continent.


The publication has come at a crucial time. With Africa’s population projected to double to 2.4 billion people by 2050, the importance of impact of development interventions has never been greater nor more urgent. The population growth rate is alarming, with serious implications for food, water, health, education, housing and other infrastructure. Already, the statistics suggest that 60% of the continent’s population are under 25, most of these under 15. This presents huge opportunities and at the same time serious challenges, not least for employment and livelihoods. To address these effectively, Africa and the rest of the world have to derive real and lasting benefits from current and future initiatives.


KPMG, through IDAS, has brought its business know-how and discipline, networks, tools and systems together with dedicated professionals to work on some key development challenges in Africa. In the 10 years since IDAS begun, we have managed nearly USD 1.5 billion in funds for some of the biggest names in development. We have reached 10 million people spread across some 25 countries.
