The Development Assistance Group (DAG) comprises 27 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 to foster and catalyze policy dialogue and co-ordinate support in the preparation, monitoring and evaluation of the country’s Poverty Reduction Strategy (currently the Growth and Transformation Plan - 2010/11-2014/15) and the universal Millennium Development Goals.The DAG works within the frameworks of global declarations and action plans such as the Rome (2003) and Paris (2005) Declarations, the Accra Agenda for Action (2008) and the Busan Partnership for Effective Development Co-operation (2011).

The four-year DAG project to improve the impact of development assistance to Ethiopia and support the government in the country’s efforts to reduce poverty, was finalized and signed off in July 2012. The DAG Pooled Fund is estimated to cost some three million USD and has now entered its fourth phase.
