In this paper Plan Netherlands aims to capture and share challenges and lessons learned from a large regional CLTS programme that was implemented in Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Niger, Sierra Leone, Uganda and Zambia between 2010 and 2016. Main lessons concern

  • budgeting and strategizing for sustainability from the beginning,
  • integrating CLTS with sanitation marketing,
  • using a phased approach with multiple methods,
  • including a CLTS sensitive baseline,
  • using CLTS as a tool to empower women and girls,
  • making hygiene a distinct component
  • improving M&E and
  • strengthening sharing and learning

These lessons  are of use for other organisations using CLTS and contribute to improving the impact of CLTS activities.
