Key resource: Apoiar os Menos Capazes ao Longo do CLTS e Depois do CLTS

Desde a sua concepção em 1999, o sistema de Saneamento Total Liderado pela Comunidade (Community-Led Total Sanitation, CLTS) alargou-se a mais de 60 países e o resultado foi que milhões de pessoas em todo o mundo passaram a viver em comunidades Livres de Fecalismo a Céu Aberto (Open Defecation Free, ODF). A abordagem afastava- -se dos programas de saneamento assentes em subsídios, que muitas vezes levavam a uma adopção desigual e a um uso parcial desse mesmo saneamento.

Key resource: Supporting the least able throughout and beyond CLTS

Since its conception in 1999, Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) has spread to over 60 countries and resulted in millions of people across the world living in open defecation free (ODF) communities. The approach was a departure from subsidy-driven sanitation programming which often led to uneven adoption and only partial use. CLTS enabled communities to own the process and collectively work towards becoming ODF. However, since its implementation at scale a number of challenges have appeared.

Fronteiras Edição 10: Igualdade e Não-Discriminação (IGND) em programas de saneamento de grande escala (Parte 1 de 2)

Um programa bem-facilitado de saneamento total liderado pela comunidade (Community-Led Total Sanitation, CLTS) que proactivamente tem em conta e envolve pessoas que podem estar em desvantagem revelou ter muitos benefícios. A falta de um programa desta natureza pode ter e muitas vezes terá impactos negativos e tornará os programas e o ODF insustentáveis.

An ongoing conversation: support versus subsidies for the most vulnerable

In the era of SDGs it is clear that there are no more easy wins and there is a need to move beyond the low hanging fruit. Sustainability studies show that slippage and poorly built or dirty latrines are most likely with the poor or most vulnerable in communities. There is clearly a need to make sure these groups are not slipping through the cracks. With many challenges around the issues of caste, gender, institutions, it is not enough to assume that intracommunity support is automatically given to those who need it the most.

Frontiers Issue 10: Equality and non-discrimination (EQND) in sanitation programmes at scale (part 1)

A well-facilitated Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) programme that pro-actively considers and involves people who might be disadvantaged has been shown to have many benefits. A lack of this can and will often have negative impacts and make programmes and ODF unsustainable.

Sanitation value chains in low density settings in Indonesia and Vietnam: impetus for a rethink to achieve pro-poor outcomes

This study examined the sanitation hardware supply chain in rural, low density settings in Indonesia and Vietnam. Actual costs along the chains were investigated to understand the challenges and opportunities to support affordable sanitation in remote, rural locations. Data was collected from four remote districts in Indonesia and Vietnam through a systematic value-chain analysis comprising 378 interviews across households and supply chain actors and both quantitative and qualitative analysis.
