Meet the Partner: Development Workshop

Founded in 1973, the Development Workshop (DW) has worked in over forty countries on human settlements development projects, research and policy advocacy.

DW was a founding member of the Habitat International Coalition (HIC) and has remained an active member of HIC in the defense of women’s and land rights. Over the last three decades, DW’s long term country and regional programs have covered the Sahel (based in Burkina Faso), South East Asia (based in Vietnam) and Angola, as well as offices in France, Canada and Namibia.

Development Workshop’s newest country program in Namibia is promoting access to affordable land with title towards controlling informal settlement growth.
