Report from the CLTS and Scaling-up Rural Sanitation Side-Event at EASAN 3, Bali

From the 8th-9th September 2012, a learning workshop on CLTS and scaling up rural sanitation in the East Asia and Pacific Region was held in Bali. The workshop, organised by Jejaring AMPL Indonesia, the CLTS team at the Institute of Development Studies (IDS), Plan International, UNICEF, WaterAid, WSP and WSSCC, was a side event prior to the EASAN3 Conference. Over 60 participants from 14 countries participated in the side event. The workshop’s aim was to create a stronger community of practice for CLTS and rural sanitation in the region, and hence ensure quality expansion and scale-up of community-led approaches for sanitation and hygiene.

Improving data collection and reporting

My attention during the workshop was caught by a joint presentation made by Indonesian government officials and Water and Sanitation Program (WSP) on Improving Data Collection and Reporting in East Java. Use of short message service (SMS) to monitor the progress of household access to improved sanitation was not only interesting but also a learning point where I thought we can adopt the same system in Malawi through arrangement with a Mobile Phone Service Provider.
