Behaviour Change for WASH: Policy Brief

Since 2010, the SHARE Consortium has prioritised behaviour change in WASH interventions, championing the importance of identifying novel and creative approaches to changing behaviours across many countries. This policy brief documents SHARE’s contribution to understanding behaviour change and associated health impacts. It provides recommendations for researchers and intervention implementers, policy makers and funders.

Learning Brief: Ensuring Child Safety During and After CLTS

Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) has been implemented in Cambodia since 2005 as a means of improving sanitation and hygiene practices in rural communities, and mobilising them to achieve open defecation free (ODF) status. In CLTS, children are often encouraged to be change agents to help influence their family and community to improve sanitation and hygiene behaviors. However, some strategies may pose a risk to child safety.

Is Community-Led Total Sanitation connected to the rebuilding of latrines? Quantitative evidence from Mozambique

To reduce open defecation, many implementers use the intervention strategies of Community-
Led Total Sanitation (CLTS), which focuses on initial latrine construction rather than ongoing latrine maintenance, repair and rebuilding. However using data from a cross-sectional survey, this article shows how physical, personal, social context and psychosocial factors from the RANAS model (risks, attitudes, norms, abilities, and self-regulation) are associated with participation in CLTS interventions, and how these factors connect to ongoing latrine maintenance and rebuilding.

Regional Africa sharing and learning workshops 2018

We have brought together a mix of useful resources produced in connection with the two essential Africa focused CLTS Knowledge Hub workshops we ran this year. Both workshops aimed to highlight common sanitation challenges and share innovations across the region. The first workshop based in Tanzania brought sanitation experts from across East and Southern Africa, the second based in Senegal brought together those from across West and Central Africa.

We are currently in the process of constructing this page - all resources will be avaialble shortly.

Resources from our East and Southern Africa workshop

A wealth of knowledge emerged from our recent East and Southern Africa Regional Sharing and Learning Workshop on CLTS and Rural Sanitation in Arusha, Tanzania in April.

We have so much we want to share with you – the workshop report, hunter gatherer reports, blogs, articles, photos and videos – that we are setting up a dedicated webpage in the next month. We will keep you posted on this. But in the meantime here are three short video interviews captured at the event with experts across the region talking on a diversity of key issues.

Nipo Tayari (I am ready) - Tanzania's national sanitation campaign song

In his interview Anyitike Mwakitalima (Tanzania National Sanitation Campaign Coordinator) talks on promoting sanitation behaviour change in Tanzania through a national campaign.

He tells us an important part of the behaviour change strategy is using engaging forms of media to spread the campaign messages. In this spirit a campaign song has been released called ‘Nipo Tayari’ which translates to ‘I am ready’, which you can listen to here!

To coincide with the release of a review on the involvement of men and boys in sanitation and hygiene programmes the CLTS Knowledge Hub are hosting a webinar on the other side of gender. Whilst discussions around gender in WASH (and elsewhere) often focus on the roles, positions or impacts on women and girls, this webinar will explore three questions with a specific focus on men and boys:

Transgender-inclusive sanitation: insights from South Asia

This paper provides insights from initiatives that include transgender people in sanitation programming in South Asia. Three case studies of recent actions to make sanitation inclusive for transgender people (in India and Nepal) are presented, accompanied by reflections and recommendations to guide future practice.
