How Time Flies: Project Malio approaches its halfway point!

Azafady UK’s three-year sanitation and hygiene initiative, Project Malio, has recently reached its halfway point promoting sustained behavior change and latrine use in the coastal town of Fort Dauphin, southeast Madagascar. Using an adapted version of the Community Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) methodology, Project Malio aims to eliminate – or at the very least significantly reduce – open defecation in Fort Dauphin by working with households, schools, communities and local government.

Project Malio- adapting rural CLTS to an urban setting in Madagascar

Azafady UK’s three-year sanitation and hygiene initiative, Project Malio, in the coastal town of Fort Dauphin, southeast Madagascar, is using an adapted version of CLTS Sanitation. Azafady have been working with households, schools, communities and local governments to promote sustained latrine use and behaviour change. Since the start of the project, over 1,780 people have been triggered to make community-wide sanitation changes following their recognition that just one person openly defecating can put the entire community at risk of disease.

AfricaSan 4: scattered highlights, and one lowlight!

A huge conference like AfricaSan provides a wealth of information and learning for the enthusiastic sanitation groupie. But so much is packed into the three-day duration that it is impossible to take in everything – schedules are tight, and often overlap, which means that nobody manages to see all of their top picks, despite efforts to have thematic discussions running in parallel throughout the conference.

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).
