Shocking imagery and cultural sensitivity: a CLTS case study from Madagascar

Approaches addressing widespread open defecation practices in southeast Madagascar must navigate strongly held cultural values, traditions and taboos. In the urban commune of Fort Dauphin, this has resulted in SEED Madagascar’s adoption of a ‘hybrid’ approach to CLTS through Project Malio, a three-year urban sanitation project which seeks to instigate behaviour change by increasing access to improved sanitation in households and schools.

Plan Netherlands’ experience of using a CLTS approach in urban environments

Plan International’s eight country Pan Africa programme, though predominately focused on rural CLTS, also trialled CLTS tools in peri-urban and urban communities with the hope that country specific urban total sanitation models would be developed. Jamie Myers, Research Officer for the CLTS Knowledge Hub which was a partner in the Pan African CLTS programme, conducted rapid action orientated research on the peri-urban and urban activities across four countries – Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda and Zambia.

Project Malio- adapting rural CLTS to an urban setting in Madagascar

Azafady UK’s three-year sanitation and hygiene initiative, Project Malio, in the coastal town of Fort Dauphin, southeast Madagascar, is using an adapted version of CLTS Sanitation. Azafady have been working with households, schools, communities and local governments to promote sustained latrine use and behaviour change. Since the start of the project, over 1,780 people have been triggered to make community-wide sanitation changes following their recognition that just one person openly defecating can put the entire community at risk of disease.
