Fronteiras Edição 8: O CLTS e o Direito ao Saneamento

A falta de saneamento tem impacto nos direitos à vida e à saúde, no direito à educação (através da perda de dias de escola, especialmente para as raparigas) e no direito à dignidade. O objectivo desta edição do Fronteiras do CLTS é examinar o Saneamento Total Liderado pela Comunidade (CLTS) à luz dos direitos humanos: os princípios e práticas de CLTS reflectem
e promovem uma abordagem do saneamento assente em direitos? Em que áreas específicas o fazem? Que áreas do CLTS prática levantam questões de incompatibilidade com os direitos

CLTS and the Right to Sanitation

Lack of sanitation impacts on the rights to life and health, the right to education (through loss in school days, particularly for girls), and the right to dignity. The purpose of this issue of Frontiers of CLTS is to examine Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) in light of human rights: Do the principles and practices of CLTS reflect and promote a rights-based approach to sanitation? In what specific areas do they do so? What areas of CLTS practice raise concerns about actual or potential incompatibility with human rights? Through this issue we hope to give a fuller understanding of human rights for CLTS practitioners to help improve practice.
