Key resource: Frontiers of CLTS Issue 4: Sustainability and CLTS- Taking Stock

Sustainability is without doubt one of the most burning subject matters that subsumes many of the issues that we are seeing in CLTS and wider WASH practice. There have been several useful studies on sustainability that have highlighted some of the different aspects as well as the complexities involved. However, it is unclear how much of the learning from these studies has been built into current and future programming and practice. Based on existing research and our own understanding, this issue of Frontiers of CLTS is an attempt at an up to date synthesis of where we are at the beginning of 2015. In the issue, we identify some priority areas for learning.

It was found that the national government shows strong support for CLTS, non-government actors play key roles in implementation, and improved monitoring is needed to assess program efficiency and effectiveness.
