Jamie Myers on Innovations for Urban Sanitation: Adapting Community-led Approaches

The CLTS Knowledge Hub is pleased to announce the launch of its new book, Innovations for Urban Sanitation: Adapting Community-led Approaches. In this interview Jamie Myers, one of the authors, talks about the motivation behind the book and some of the principles that underpin an Urban Community-Led Total Sanitation (U-CLTS) approach.

Over half the world’s population now lives in urban areas and a large proportion of them lives without improved sanitation. This book has been developed in response to calls from practitioners for practical guidance on how to mobilise communities and improve different parts of the sanitation chain in urban areas. Urban Community-Led Total Sanitation is potentially an important piece of a bigger puzzle. It offers a set of approaches, tools and tactics for practitioners to move towards safely managed sanitation services. The book provides examples of towns and cities in Africa, South Asia and South-East Asia which have used these approaches.

The book is published by Practical Action and is available for purchase in print or download a PDF copy for free.
