Our workshop Learning Brief on East and Southern Africa

Following our recent East and Southern Africa regional rural sanitation workshop in Tanzania in April 2018, we are delighted to share with you the first official output from the event, a learning brief which presents the common challenges and barriers to achieving Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6.2 that the workshop participants identified across the region.

Amongst other things, four key issues emerged:

Regional Africa sharing and learning workshops 2018

We have brought together a mix of useful resources produced in connection with the two essential Africa focused CLTS Knowledge Hub workshops we ran this year. Both workshops aimed to highlight common sanitation challenges and share innovations across the region. The first workshop based in Tanzania brought sanitation experts from across East and Southern Africa, the second based in Senegal brought together those from across West and Central Africa.

We are currently in the process of constructing this page - all resources will be avaialble shortly.

Resources from our East and Southern Africa workshop

A wealth of knowledge emerged from our recent East and Southern Africa Regional Sharing and Learning Workshop on CLTS and Rural Sanitation in Arusha, Tanzania in April.

We have so much we want to share with you – the workshop report, hunter gatherer reports, blogs, articles, photos and videos – that we are setting up a dedicated webpage in the next month. We will keep you posted on this. But in the meantime here are three short video interviews captured at the event with experts across the region talking on a diversity of key issues.

Learnings from our East and Southern Africa workshop

This blog post is on reaching the 'last mile' and moving up the sanitation ladder - learnings that emerged from the East and Southern Africa Sharing and Learning Workshop. At the recent CLTS Knowledge Hub regional sharing and learning workshop held in Arusha 16-20 April, it was encouraging to see that the discourse and programming in the region has matured since the early days of CLTS (and early days of these sharing and learning workshops!).

What has worked for Bangladesh?

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.  In this post I provide an outline of changes in the sanitation situation in nine Bangladesh unions, mostly rural areas, over a period of five or more years, drawn from a recently published report from Plan Alternatives for Change LLC, ‘

Nigeria: Effectiveness and Sustainability of Community-Led Total Sanitation

In Nigeria, diarrheal diseases are the third leading cause of mortality, accounting for over 75,000 deaths of children aged 1-59 months in 2015 (WHO, 2016).  From 2012 to 2016, Action Against Hunger worked with local authorities to trigger 138 communities in Yobe State, Northern Nigeria, using the Community-Led Total Sanitation methodology. The objective of this approach is to empower the community to realise the negative impacts of open defecation on health and well-being, and thus mobilise itself to eliminate open defecation and improve sanitation with limited external intervention.

Synergies, Trade-Offs and Support Mechanisms and Leaving no one behind: session at WASH Futures

The CLTS Knowledge Hub along with UNICEF, SNV and the Institute of Sustainability co-convened a workshop Synergies, Trade-Offs and Support Mechanisms and Leaving no one behind- ensuring equality and non-discrimination in sanitation on Wednesday 7th March 2018 as part of the WASH Futures Conference in Brisbane. The full day session looked at current thinking on the phasing and combination of other approaches, internal and external support mechanisms and how these interact with CLTS and other rural WASH approaches in practice.
