About DAG

Development Action Group (DAG), a leading NGO in the urban sector, was established in 1986. We work closely with citizens, civil society organisations and government to address emerging urban challenges and we are highly committed to a partnership model of intervention that favours a pro poor agenda. Since 2010 DAG has been aligning its programmes, projects and interventions around the theme of “re-imagining the city” and looking towards a “new urban order in the South African context” while, at the same time, consolidating our traditional role of facilitating access to affordable housing opportunities. Outcomes and lessons learnt between 2010 and 2013 underpin and inform DAG’s strategic vision, direction and current programme agenda.
