Development Workshop (DW) is a non-government organisation that works to develop policies and programs for human settlements and self-help housing guided by indigenous practices and local knowledge. The Development Workshop Digital Archive exists in order to preserve the legacy of DW’s work starting in the early 1970s and spanning more than 30 countries. The Digital Archive contains over 5500 items including digitized slides, photographs, documents, cartographic material and video files and is being updated continuously with archived and newly developed information. DW wishes to contribute its research and experience freely with stakeholders, other organizations, the global academic community and the general public.
