We were 45 participants, coming from different countries –with Nepal leading in terms of numbers of participants and India second– and with various degrees and kinds of experience in CLTS.

Pathways to Sustainability in Community-Led Total Sanitation. Experiences from Madhya Pradesh and Himachal Pradesh

Inspecting latrines
India’s rural Total Sanitation Campaign (1999-2012) in India was considered a complete failure due to its poor results and the millions of ‘missing latrines’. In the light of the shortcomings of the campaign, different actors tried to introduce the Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) approach in the country. However, as a result of opposition at the national level, only specific districts in certain states tried the approach. Many of these experiences were claimed to be very successful, but the evidence base of these claims was weak. Did they actually manage to introduce the CLTS in these areas? Did it yield good results? Are these sustainable?

ODF Verification in Western Equatoria State

Inspecting a household latrine and handwashing station

CLTS was introduced in Western Equatoria State state in October 2011 through a training facilitated by Plan International and sponsored by UNICEF. A number of organizations send representatives to participate in the training. In October 2012 fourteen villages  underwent Open Defecation Free (ODF) verification. These are villages that had been facilitated by one of UNICEF’s partners, Intersos. 10 of the villages had claimed to have attained ODF status and this provided a rationale for conducting the verification.
