This Field Note presents the steps in micro-planning and discusses the challenges and successes of the process.

Free (ODF) by 2015. In 2012, all districts in the country were implementing CLTS with promising results on behaviour change for latrine use. Given

Rural sanitation in flood affected areas evaluation

Post Floods 2010, UNICEF with other development partners developed and implemented a large-scale sanitation recovery initiative. The initiative is known as Early Recovery Scaling-up of Rural Sanitation in Flood Affected Districts (RuSFAD). It was jointly developed by UNICEF, UN HABITAT and Plan Pakistan (PP).
