Sanitation success stories: nine Bangladesh case studies

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Over the past two decades Bangladesh has achieved significant successes around national sanitation coverage, through increased latrine access and sanitation education campaigns, which has resulted in a large part of the country’s population shifting away from open defecation to using household concrete-lined pit latrines.

This report aims to share learnings and insight into how success was achieved and sustained in nine unions across Bangladesh. Unions have large populations (13,000 to 50,000 or more), and are socially diverse regions, and the report shows that their pathways to sanitation success share many similarities as well as a number of significant differences.
