The fifth South Asian Conference on Sanitation –SACOSAN V–  took place in late October 2013 in Kathmandu, Nepal. During four days, 400 delegates from all over the world, though the vast majority from South Asia, had the opportunity to , exchange experiences, learn and network around sanitation. CLTS was also present at SACOSAN V, and not only for being mentioned in some of the conference presentations. The CLTS Knowledge Hub (IDS) in collaboration with the CLTS Foundation, organised two informal side events –one on urban CLTS and one called ‘Transforming Sanitation: CLTS around the world’.

The following report by Andres Hueso Gonzalez is based on his observations at the conference, particularly the CLTS sessions and discussions. It starts with some insights from the conference sessions, particularly from the recent developments in sanitation in Nepal and the looks at the topic of  ‘reaching the unreached’.The second section of the report deals with the two CLTS side events (CLTS around the world and urban CLTS), and gives some closing remarks.
