Nico Terra

Hundreds of millions of people today still lack safe drinking water and a basic, hygienic toilet despite the resources to provide these services for everyone are available but not accessible.Water and sanitation for everyone, forever, is what drives my work.

I have over 35 years of experience in managing professional service organisations in their development. The last 10 years, I focused specifically on NGOs in the field of water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH).
