About

Who is UBU?
UBU is the Danish abbreviation for Ulandsforeningen for Bæredygtig Udvikling or in English Danish Association for Sustainable Development.

UBU is a voluntary, technically founded NGO working within the field of water supply and environmental science. UBU was founded in 1998.

UBU helps civil societies in developing countries to improve living conditions for poor people through promotion of technologies that are socially, culturally, environmentally and economically sustainable.

UBU’s primary working method has traditionally been focused on capacity development and technical support of the local organisations, but it is moving strongly towards development of advocacy strategies to secure support from local government institutions.

Currently UBU works in India and Tanzania.

UBU’s Vision
