GTO and BORDA among others cooperate on the joint implementation of the project funded by Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF). The project is administered in BORDA’s Headquarter in Bremen, Germany


Seven organizations (BORDA, CAWST, Eawag, GTO, IHE Delft, Netherlands Red Cross and Solidarités international), who are jointly active in the FSM TWiG, decided to form a consortium and develop the SANIHUB. The consortium is coordinated by the GTO.  

The SANIHUB will help to close the knowledge and capacity gaps in faecal sludge management and sanitation. It will make essential knowledge and the best exisiting tools available in a structured and quality-assured manner. One example for this is the integration of the Compendium of Sanitation Technologies in Emergencies. In addition to various interactive online tools and an extensive knowledge database, the hub will include a continuously and actively operated helpdesk for humanitarian WASH practitioners.
