German Forum on Environment and Development

The German Forum on Environment and Development (FUE) was founded in 1992 after the UN conference on Environment and Development. It coordinates German NGOs in international political processes on sustainable development and environmental issues. The Forum is funded by the Federal Environment Ministry. Legal entity is the German League for Nature and Environment (DNR). In thematic Working Groups, such as the Working Group Water, the member organisations work on common issues, campaigns or other activities.


German Toilet Organization (GTO) is active in the Working Group Water of the FUE. The cooperation results in numerous joint events, such as the press conference on World Toilet Day 2008 in front of Berlin Central Station, and joint publications.
