Sanitation Market Shaping: Strategy Brief

One of the key programming approaches adopted in the UNICEF global strategy for WASH (2016-2030) is to build large-scale sustainable markets for sanitation goods and services that balance demand and supply.  Given that many markets in low-income countries are very weak and poorly developed, there is a need for governments and development partners to work together to influence and shape markets to ensure that products and services are available and affordable to those who need them.

Blog: Ways forward for rural sanitation in Africa

The CLTS Knowledge Hub  has had a busy year! We have hosted and facilitated two regional rural sanitation workshops in Africa.

Read this blog on the approach, challenges and sucsesses of the two events  - including learning briefs on both events available in Enlgish and French.

UNICEF Game plan to end open defecation

The game plan outlines UNICEF’s programmatic focus and approaches in sanitation over the next four years to 2021. It will help ensure that ending open defecation receives the deliberate and sustained attention it will require to succeed: without a constant focus on the issue, there is no doubt that both the SDG objectives and UNICEF’s objectives for sanitation (as per Goal Area 4 in the Strategic Plan 2018-2021) will be jeopardised. The game plan will ensure that there is a strong emphasis on both equity and the sustainability of results, in line with UNICEF’s WASH Strategy 2016-2030.

CLTS Rapid Appraisal Protocol (C-RAP). A tool for rapid assessment of the practice of CLTS at scale

CLTS rapid Appraisal Protocol (CRAP) is a diagnostic tool to review the quality and effectiveness of CLTS programming in a country. The success of CLTS in triggering communities for collective behaviour change has been a global phenomenon. However achieving scale in a planned, coordinated and consistent manner to move beyond ODF villages towards generating ODF districts, regions and nations has been challenging. Furthermore, wide variations have been found in the quality of implementation, rolling out and outcomes across different countries.

Reduction of stunting by CLTS in Mali: a case study to learn from

Mali is renowned as the location of the one of the few Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) programmes that has managed to demonstrate a reduction in stunting from increased community-level sanitation coverage. There is much to learn and share from this programme, especially across the West and Central Africa region where similar sanitation challenges are faced and open defecation rates generally remain high.

Breaking the Silence on Menstruation: Findings from a Study on Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) in Eritrean Middle Schools

There is an increasing global recognition that school-aged girls face challenges in sufficiently managing their menstrual hygiene, which affects their educational attainment and psychosocial well-being. There is limited information on the challenges that girls face in relation to menstruation in Eritrea or the impacts that cultural beliefs and practices have on girls’ ability to manage their menstruation while in school.
