Key resource: Apoio aos Mais Pobres e Mais Vulneráveis em Programas de CLTS

O CLTS Knowledge Hub e o UNICEF organizaram nas Filipinas, em Maio de 2017, um workshop com enfoque na Ásia, intitulado «Apoiar os mais pobres e mais vulneráveis nos programas de CLTS». O evento reuniu pessoas com experiência de trabalho directo, apoio ou pesquisa em programas de CLTS em todo o continente. Ao longo de cinco dias, os participantes, representando diversas organizações, exploraram maneiras de se poder apoiar os mais pobres e mais vulneráveis, tanto pelo reforço do processo CLTS como pela introdução de mecanismos de apoio.

Key resource: Soutenir les moins capables tout au long de l’ATPC et au-delà

Depuis sa conception en 1999, l’Assainissement total piloté par la communauté (ATPC) s’est propagé dans plus de 60 pays et a permis à des millions de personnes à travers le globe de vivre dans des communautés ayant mis fin à la défécation à l’air libre (FDAL). L’approche se démarque de la programmation de l’assainissement à base de subvention qui débouche souvent sur une adoption inégale et sur une utilisation partielle des toilettes. L’ATPC a permis aux communautés de s’approprier le processus et de travailler collectivement à l’obtention du statut FDAL.

Key resource: Apoiar os Menos Capazes ao Longo do CLTS e Depois do CLTS

Desde a sua concepção em 1999, o sistema de Saneamento Total Liderado pela Comunidade (Community-Led Total Sanitation, CLTS) alargou-se a mais de 60 países e o resultado foi que milhões de pessoas em todo o mundo passaram a viver em comunidades Livres de Fecalismo a Céu Aberto (Open Defecation Free, ODF). A abordagem afastava- -se dos programas de saneamento assentes em subsídios, que muitas vezes levavam a uma adopção desigual e a um uso parcial desse mesmo saneamento.

Key resource: Supporting the least able throughout and beyond CLTS

Since its conception in 1999, Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) has spread to over 60 countries and resulted in millions of people across the world living in open defecation free (ODF) communities. The approach was a departure from subsidy-driven sanitation programming which often led to uneven adoption and only partial use. CLTS enabled communities to own the process and collectively work towards becoming ODF. However, since its implementation at scale a number of challenges have appeared.

Rethinking Rural Sanitation Approaches

Current rural sanitation practitioners and decision makers are faced with insufficient information on the relative performance of different programming approaches. These approaches are frequently defined either too tightly, or too loosely, which stifles innovation, learning and opportunities to combine and tailor approaches to the changing contexts in which they operate. The cost of facilitating and delivering these approaches is often not well understood or monitored.

Exploring Determinants of Handwashing with Soap in Indonesia: A Quantitative Analysis

Handwashing with soap is recognized as a cost-effective intervention to reduce morbidity and mortality associated with enteric and respiratory infections. This study analyzes rural Indonesian households’ hygiene behaviors and attitudes to examine how motivations for handwashing, locations of handwashing space in the household, and handwashing moments are associated with handwashing with soap as potential determinants of the behavior. The analysis was conducted using results from a UNICEF cross-sectional study of 1700 households in six districts across three provinces of Indonesia.

Community Approaches to Total Sanitation (CATS) programmes, like the Sanitasi Total Berbasis Masyarakat (STBM) programme of the Government of Indonesia, have played a significant role in reducing open defecation though still little is known about the sustainability of the outcomes. This study assessed the sustainability of verified Open Defecation Free (ODF) villages and explored the association between slippage occurrence and the strength of social norms through a government conducted cross-sectional data collection in rural Indonesia.
