Photo competition: supporting the poorest and most marginalised

CLTS has proven to be a powerful approach to trigger communities into becoming open defecation free (ODF) in many countries across the world. However, sustainability studies are beginning to show that ODF status is often fragile and those most likely to revert back to open defecation are the poorest and most disadvantaged. This may be due to limited resources and capacity resulting in less well-built, less durable and less well-located toilets that are more likely to collapse, face problems and discourage use.

Instituting equity and inclusion in market-based approaches: reaching the poor and disabled in sanitation

This paper describes iDE's approach to mainstreaming equity and inclusion within its market-based approach from the beginning of a programme and not as an afterthought. The paper focuses on two separate strategies aimed at increasing access and equity among different groups. The first is the use of financial tools to increase access for very poor consumers in Bangladesh and Cambodia. The second part of the paper focuses on iDE's user-centred design approach and experimentation with new construction technologies in constructing a latrine shelter for disabled users.

Supporting the poor to access sanitation in Bokeo Province, Laos

Internationally, there has been debate over the last decade about effective ways to increase access to sanitation as a basic human right and essential service to support public health. Within Laos, a similar debate is underway, with a history of provision of hardware subsidies through public or non-governmental organisation funding, and more recently a shift towards demand-driven approaches to motivate household investment and market support to enable more efficient, affordable supply of sanitation products.
