Robert Chambers (March 2009)

In this IDS Practice Paper, which forms part of the action learning component of the project Going to Scale? The Potential of Community-led Total Sanitation, Robert Chambers reviews the experience gained with CLTS in Asia and Africa as it has spread over the last few years, explores options and ways forward for the future. He touches on the context and background of CLTS, illustrates different patterns of spread with country case studies from Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, Pakistan, Ethiopia and Kenya, and highlights practices that have been found effective as well as obstacles and emerging issues for review, reflection and research.
