IWP Research Seminar

Developing a World Toilet Index

Jack Sim founded the World Toilet Organisation as the global voice for sanitation and toilet. Using its unique blend of humor and serious facts, it broke the taboo of the Sanitation agenda since 2001 and converted this embarrassing topic from oblivion to a global media darling.

In 2013, WTO’s founding day 19th November which has an outreach of about 3 billion annually was officially adopted unanimously by all 193 countries members of the UN General Assembly as the Official UN World Toilet Day.

To motivate governments to improve the state of sanitation conditions, he now proposes to start a World Toilet Index to rank the progress of sanitation conditions in all countries at all levels of state, province, cities, and districts, as well as in different categories of toilets ranging from tourism to schools, workplaces and transport centers.
