Frontières Numéro 1: Développement d’un concept participatif pour l’assainissement

Frontiers Issue 1 French cover

La durabilité des latrines est un enjeu crucial de l’ATPC. Les sols sablonneux ou rocheux , les inondations saisonnières ou encore les termites peuvent présenter de graves défis pour les communautés qui ont choisi de s’occuper de leur propre assainissement grâce à l’ATPC et qui optent pour la construction de latrines. Le manuel de l’ATPC identifie le besoin d’approches par conception participative durant des sessions de suivi avec des communautés ayant fait l’objet d’un déclenchement.

Recommendations for Triggering Local Leaders

Community members

Reaching each and every village in Malawi with a CLTS triggering, and sufficient follow-up support cis could take many years, and a lot of resources. So, the ODF Malawi by 2015 National Strategy has suggested some additional ways to promote the concept of “ODF”. What if religious leaders (pastors, church elders, priests, imams, etc.) traditional leaders (village heads, group village heads, traditional authori-ties and chiefs) or other local leaders (VDCs, ADCs, SMCs, etc.) could be effectively encouraged to promote ODF?
