Advanced Sanitation Training Course for German NGOs

After more than 5 basic sanitation trainings the German Toilet Organization (GTO) has developed a new advanced training course to deepen the knowledge of the participants on sustainable sanitation in the context of development cooperation. The first advanced training took place from 3 to 4 March 2012 in Berlin in the Bundesministerium für wirtschaftliche Zusammenarbeit und Entwicklung (BMZ) and was a big success. The training topics ranged from detailed information on sustainable sanitation technologies and -systems to non-technical accompanying measures and financing. Various knowledge tools/toolboxes were introduced and project examples were discussed with regard to “best practices” and “lessons learnt”.

The advanced training course was developed in collaboration with Women in Europe for a Common Future (WECF) and carried out in cooperation with NGO-Ideas with funding by BMZ.

This seminar was held in German. A German description of the seminar content and all the presentations (in German) are provided below.

Similar trainings will be offered in the future. Please contact GTO for further details.

Nach mehr als 5 Grundlagenseminaren zu nachhaltiger Sanitärversorgung hat die German Toilet Organization (GTO) ein neues Aufbauseminar entwickelt, um das bereits erworbene Wissen zu vertiefen und auszubauen. Das erste Seminar fand vom 3.-4. März 2012 im Bundesministerium für wirtschaftliche Zusammenarbeit und Entwicklung (BMZ) in Berlin statt, und kann als voller Erfolg gewertet werden. Die Themenbereiche reichten von detaillierten Sanitärtechnologien und Systemen bis hin zu nichttechnischen Begleitmaßnahmen. Ebenso wurden unterschiedlichste Materialien und Werkzeuge (Online-Tools) vorgestellt und deren Funktionsweisen erklärt. Abschließend wurden Projekte evaluiert und diskutiert, wobei der Fokus auf „best practices“ und „lessons learnt“ lag.

Das Vertiefungsseminar wurde in Zusammenarbeit mit Women in Europe for a Common Future (WECF) erarbeitet und in Kooperation mit NGO-Ideas aus Mitteln des BMZ durchgeführt.

Interessierte, die gerne an zukünftigen Seminaren teilnehmen möchten, wenden Sie sich bitte direkt an die GTO.
