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.

- Re: Phase 3: Supporting sustainable sanitation through knowledge management and collaborative action within SuSanA - by: F H Mughal January 19, 2017Dear Elisabeth, It is the internet itself. At the moment, I don't see any plan of improvement. With workshops, what I had in my mind was to learn from the experiences of other participants. As is normally the case, I expect presentations from the resourced persons. Why Susana HQ - because that might entails some cost savings. Elsewhere, you mentioned ab […]
- Re: Getting the bigger picture - Creating sanitation systems for whole cities. City-wide planning and the role of FSM in the case of India - by: dirkwalther January 19, 2017The observation is perfectly right that the standards of constructed septic tanks is often insufficient. However it is interesting that some states like Kerala, do a fairly decent job, whereas other do not.

- Re: Phase 3: Supporting sustainable sanitation through knowledge management and collaborative action within SuSanA - by: muench January 19, 2017Dear Mughal, When you say "unreliable internet", is this mainly due to power cuts? Or the internet itself? Are there any moves in Pakistan to improve the internet connectivity? I hope so. Many countries are working on that (including Germany, in fact). In some cases, the phone networks also enable a more solid internet connection than the computers […]
