Deutsche Gesellschaft für Technische Zusammenarbeit GmbH (GTZ), Germany:
The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Technische Zusammenarbeit (GTZ) GmbH is Germany’s implementing agency for Technical Cooperation. While most commissions are placed by the German Government, GTZ’s services are frequently contracted directly by partner country governments and international institutions, as e.g. the European Union, the World Bank, other international financial institutions and United Nations organizations. Established in 1974 by the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany. GTZ, although government-owned, was given the legal status of a private limited company (GmbH) under German law. GTZ has a worldwide portfolio of development programmes in various sectors such as health, education, governance, rural development, environment and finance, and multisectoral programmes through which we can build and develop cooperation to meet the future needs in partner countries. The GTZs activities within this NETSSAF will be implemented within the GTZs sector program ecosan. This ecosan sector program is working since 2000 in the development, field-testing and dissemination of recycling oriented water and sanitation systems and has supported the implementation of ecosan pilot projects in more than 50 countries worldwide and represents one of the worlds leading programs for the knowledge management and promotion of ecological sanitation.
Main role in the project
Group leader of EG 3 (Community based management). GTZ supported the assessment of existing low cost conventional sanitation options and innovative sanitation technologies in Work Package 3, as in the dissemination and capacity building of authorities for future implementation and dissemination (task 8.2). GTZ also gave an especial contribution to the identification of non-technical requirements for large scale implementation by summarizing the drawn conclusions, and they prepared at least one article, with the help of CREPA, related to the EG3.
