Almost two-and-a-half billion people lack access to an adequate toilet, and around one billion have no sanitation facilities whatsoever. Poor sanitation kills a child under five every 100 seconds. In this BBC audio documentary, anthropologist and broadcaster Mary-Ann Ochota visits Bangladesh and India to understand the challenges involved in achieving sanitation for all.
Community-Led Total Sanitation approaches started in Ethiopia in 2006 and have been widely supported by a range of actors. In recent years, the government has made the decision to make CLTS its official strategy for addressing access to sanitation. Recognizing the need for additional local support and to reduce dependence on overburdened Health Extension Workers, Plan International has been piloting and testing new approaches in training and empowering school teachers to act as CLTS facilitators.
The Testing CLTS Approaches for Scalability project is a four year, sanitation focused, operational research project carried out by UNC and Plan that aims to advance rural sanitation efforts by improving the cost-effectiveness and scalability of the CLTS approach, with a particular focus on the role of local actors. In Ghana, the project assesses the effectiveness of increasing the capacity of local actors (natural leaders), thereby enabling them to carry out post-triggering activities and reduce their dependency on local non-governmental organizations for follow-up.
