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.

I am a planner and with the perspective of planning, following are my views. Case study is a method and is a methodology. In social science research is normally used for building theories and testing theories. Case studies can be used for both. However […]
- Re: design and technology option to be used for a decentralised unit in a location having less space - by: goeco April 25, 2017The "biodigester" that Edwin offers as a solution by discretely describing what it does rather than what it is, is actually a vermifilter (an aerobic treatment technology). There is a wikipedia article for reference. Vision Earthcare's product offering also uses vermifiltration, combined with plants. Rather than addressing the question (how to […]
- Re: Defining the Scope of Case Study Research - What is a best practice? - by: nityajacob April 25, 2017Dear all, I am reposting excerpts from a comment from Nipun Vinayak, the Mission Director of the Swachh Bharat Mission. You can read the original on his blog, wordpress.com/read/blogs/82690141/posts/360. A discussion is on in the SuSanA ( Sustainability Sanitation Alliance) regarding nature and utility of case studies for sanitation. The subject assumes impo […]
- What can we reliably say about pathogen removal with vermifilters? - by: muench April 24, 2017I've started a discussion about pathogen removal with vermifilters with Dean offline and he rightly pointed out to rather move our conversation to the Forum. So here it comes: It started by me questioning how pathogen removal is described in the Wikipedia article about vermifilters, see here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Vermifilter#Pathogen_removal.3F Cu […]
- Sanitation Systems categories - by: goeco April 24, 2017The "Sanitation Systems" category is littered with topics and subtopics and in my view should be rationalised to make it easier to find things. How about (sorry, can't get nesting to work): Sanitation systems · Faecal sludge management o Vault content research and faecal sludge characteristics(26/158) o Faecal sludge transport (including empty […]
