CLTS in Kenya and menstrual hygiene management

Gathering by the CLTS stall at the WEDC Conference in Nakuru

Our third day at the WEDC conference in Nakuru started with an open meeting at the CLTS stall. As those who participated were primarily from Kenya, most of the discussion dealt with sanitation in the country.

The first topic discussed was the need of political commitment at higher levels if CLTS is to be rolled out at the country level. When it is in place, solutions are quickly found to the ‘common’ obstacles CLTS faces when scaling up (lack of capacity, human resources etc.).
