The Danish 92 Group is a coalition of 23 Danish NGO's working on issues related to the environment and development. The group was established in 1991 with the mandate of coordinating the Danish NGOs' preparations for the United Nation's Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) in Rio de Janeiro, 1992.

Activities include joint actions on advocacy, lobbying and information activities coordinated in different thematic working groups. Currently the secretariat of The Danish 92 Group is based at CARE Denmark.
