The Development and Environment group (DEG) is a working group of British Overseas NGOs for Development. It "provides a forum where agencies working at the interface of environmental and poverty issues can exchange information, enhance their analysis and coordinate their advocacy towards UK Government and other relevant institutions.

"DEG was founded to act as the contact point between development and environment NGOs and the UK government delegation in Johannesburg 2002, at the World Summit for Sustainable Development (WSSD). The government also asked DEG to co-ordinate NGO representation on the official UK delegation to the Preparatory Committees. The group collated and disseminated information from Government, NGOs and other stakeholders to help NGOs keep track of issues and influence at the Summit." [1]
