Monitoring and sustainability

Reporting back from the 37th WEDC Conference in Hanoi- Day 1

It’s my 5th WEDC conference! This year the conference is in Hanoi, Vietnam co-hosted with the National University of Civil Engineering. WEDC Conference is a key international meeting attended by WASH policy and programme staff, academics, activists and experts. The papers will be available on-line shortly (www.wedc-knowledge.lboro.ac.uk) but in anticipation, here are some thoughts from the conference about the research and practice presented.

Public pledging for collective behaviour change

Fronteiras Edição 1: Desenvolvimento da Concepção Participativa para Saneamento

A sustentabilidade das latrinas é uma questão fundamental de CLTS. Solos arenosos ou rochosos, inundações sazonais e térmitas podem criar dificuldades às comunidades que assumiram elas próprias a responsabilidade do seu saneamento, como resultado do CLTS, e que estão a construir latrinas. O Manual de CLTS identifica a necessidade de abordagens da concepção participativa durante as sessões de acompanhamento com as comunidades capacitadas.
