Where it has been introduced, CLTS has been integrated with other development initiatives. Besides ending open defecation, the focus is on a more comprehensive package which includes wastewater management, solid waste disposal, overall hygiene and more. The approach has also been modified in some countries to ‘School-led Total Sanitation (SLTS)’, whereby schools are the prime drivers in achieving ODF status. This has widened the spread of CLTS and its impact, both among adults and children. Plan, Water Aid and UNICEF have become important disseminators and champions of CLTS. Today, it is present in many countries in Asia, Africa, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa. In sub-Saharan Africa, it has taken root in 28 countries and gained the support of decision makers and professionals, who have recognised it as a successful, cost-effective approach and have issued a declaration to urge governments to take more decisive steps to ensure ODF environments among local communities.

In practical terms, people will be working on the ones that need the most work. The baseline study does include 70 because we thought it valuable to have those good examples in the mix with the ones that need more work. Our thinking was that it would help people see what "better" and "b […]
- SuSanA members to improve quality of WASH information on Wikipedia: 19 Sept to 19 Nov - by: canaday September 22, 2017Hi Diane and Elisabeth, I would suggest that many of those pages are in good shape. It might be worthwhile to make a shorter list of pages that need help and diagnose them (This one needs references, that one photos, these proofreading, those translations, that one creation from scratch, etc.). Like I have mentioned before, I recommend any Forum members who […]
- What can we reliably say about pathogen removal with vermifilters? - by: hajo September 22, 2017Dear Mohammad, I am not the right address for your question, but I will try what I can and hope Dean will jump in where necessary: surely 'worm' is not equal 'worm', composting worms you find here en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vermicompost under 'Suitable worm species'. A leech is not a composting worm and looks quite different, please […]
- What can we reliably say about pathogen removal with vermifilters? - by: hajo September 22, 2017Hi Dean, nice to meet you also on this thread.. ... and you understood my questions correctly, sorry for being possibly a bit vague... I am a bit surprised to read that some 'research' proves that vermi-composting eliminates ascaris and others do not. I had - the obviously wrong perception - that 'research' has such high standards, that r […]
