National protocols and guidelines for verification and certification

Definitions Verification is the process of confirming the claims of communities to have met the criteria for ODF status. Certification is the official confirmation and recognition of the ODF status of communities. Verification of communities claiming to be ODF (open defecation free) and certification of these communities are key stages in CLTS follow up and vital for quality assurance and sustainability of collective behaviour change. Carrying out follow up, verification and certification at scale is not an easy task. With more and more national governments adopting CLTS as their key approach to sanitation and including it in their policies, there is a need for streamlined guidance on monitoring and on how to conduct verification and certification.

Training Guide for CLTS Facilitators (Uganda)

This manual intends to guide community facilitators in promoting the CLTS approach for improved sanitation and ensuing benefits. The handbook outlines the background to CLTS as well as its potential in bringing about positive behaviour and enumerates a step by step guide to promoting CLTS. It is hoped that this handbook will inspire trainers, practitioners, managers and policy-makers to ensure high standards of preparation, facilitation and follow up support; and that it will discourage target oriented approaches which degenerate into counting latrines and meeting targets for their construction, instead of assessing with rigorous standards the numbers of communities that truly achieve ODF status.
