About us

Development Workshop works with some of the poorest communities in the world, developing local capacities to improve lives and livelihoods. For over 30 years we have provided training and technical assistance to enable local people to deal with environmental challenges and natural disasters in more than 30 countries.

We employ traditional building techniques to meet the very modern challenges facing these communities, using sustainable resources and working directly with local people and organisations. Our projects create local jobs, improve living conditions, empower disadvantaged communities and preserve the local environment.

Based in France, we have worked primarily in SE Asia and West Africa, with a regional office in Vietnam, and continue to promote the succession of our activities to become the responsability of our local partners.
