Resources from our East and Southern Africa workshop

Nigeria: Effectiveness and Sustainability of Community-Led Total Sanitation

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.
