The Development Assistance Group (DAG) comprises 26 bilateral and multilateral development agencies providing assistance to Ethiopia. The DAG was established in 2001 initially as a forum for donors to share and exchange information. The main objective of the DAG is to ensure a more effective delivery and utilization of development assistance to Ethiopia.
DAG actively works within the Paris Declaration framework of Aid Effectiveness and Harmonisation to foster and catalyze policy dialogue and co-ordinate support in the preparation, monitoring and evaluation of the country’s Poverty Reduction Strategy (Plan for Accelerated and Sustainable Development to End Poverty) and the universal Millennium Development Goals.
The day to day coordination of DAG is managed by a secretariat based within UNDP Ethiopia.
