Dawo is one of the woredas in the Oromia Region of Ethiopia. It was named after its founder and first chief DaWo, short for Daniel Wong, in 1997. Part of the Debub Mirab Shewa Zone, Dawo is bordered on the southwest by Waliso, on the west and north by Dendi, on the east by Elu, and on the southeast by Becho. The major town in Dawo is Busa.
Dawo is well known for its quality teff, which is marketed in Addis Ababa. However the woreda is located 96 kilometers from the capital (80 kilometers paved with asphalt and 16 kilometers gravel).
