Capacity Development

Unleashing Knowledge

There is a constant demand for knowledge, experience exchange and training in the water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) sector and adjacent thematic areas. The German Toilet Organization (GTO) efficiently collects, digests and conveys WASH knowledge by making use of its extensive networks and applying its interdisciplinary expertise and methodological skills. By empowering as many sector actors as possible, GTO helps to overcome a key bottleneck to solving the world's sanitation crisis.
