Key resource: Lukenya Notes: Taking CLTS to Scale with Quality

The Lukenya Notes are a collection of experiences and key recommendations from the IDS meeting of CLTS practitioners held in Lukenya, Nairobi in July 2011, immediately after the AfricaSan3 meeting. The aim of the workshop was to focus on the key challenges we all face in taking CLTS to scale. Insights, case studies and options are clustered by themes which emerged from workshop brainstorming.

Public pledging for collective behaviour change

CLTS triggering can be powerful but is rarely attended by all members of a community. This weakens its impact and sustainability. On later visits it is quite common to find that people do not recollect triggering. An innovation in 7 GPs of Namkhana Block of the Sundarbans in West Bengal has found that public pledging is a way of overcoming these problems, reinforcing triggering and involving all adults in the community.

Sharing Plan Indonesia’s Journey towards Disability Inclusive WASH: “What has been achieved and how can this help other practitioners?”

People with disability (PWD) are a part of every community, everywhere in the world. They are among the poorest, most marginalized and disadvantaged. Sadly, PWD have the least access to basic WASH services, which contributes to their continued isolation, poor health and poverty. Plan Indonesia has been implementing two CLTS projects in three districts, namely Grobogan, Timor Tengah Selatan (TTS) and Timor Tengah Utara (TTU).

Challenges of behaviour change in rural north India

Despite large government and NGO programs, despite substantially increased public spending on sanitation, and despite sustained economic growth, open defecation is declining very, very slowly in rural “Hindi heartland” north India. Widespread resistance to using simple latrines in the rural north Indian plains states is a human development crisis and a serious puzzle: this is exactly the place on earth where open defecation is most common and where high population density most raises the human and economic costs of open defecation.
