Development Workshop was founded in 1973 and has been a promoter of urban and civic rights for more than four decades. DW is an active member of the African platform of the GPR2C. We have worked with international and African partners during the last 4 or 5 years as advocates for the right to the city in many local, national and international forums. We were instrumental in getting the Angolan Government to support the inclusion of the right to the city in the New Urban Agenda.

Our focus is the global South, where an estimated one in three of the urban population live in informal settlements and where more than half work within the informal economy. UN projections suggest that almost all the world’s growth in population in the next few decades will be in urban centres in the Global South.
