Sanitation is a human right. Nevertheless, it remains a politically neglected, under-financed and oftentimes strongly taboo-inflicted issue. The German Toilet Organization (GTO) positions itself in national and international political processes with the aim of increasing political prioritisation and improving specific policies and structures. By addressing politicians, the private sector, academia, civil society and everyday citizens, GTO draws attention to the topic, breaks the taboo and fills knowledge gaps.
Building Bridges between Persons, Organisations and Sectors
GTO analyses current trends and discourses in order to systematically leverage synergies between sectors, issues and actors. With an extensive portfolio of instruments and methodological competencies, GTO works to shape political developments and uses public campaigns to draw attention to the human right to sanitation. By creating politcal will and translating policy into practice, GTO contributes to positive long-term change.
