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: WASHwatch - A platform facilitating transparency in monitoring, availability of information and communication - by: muench March 25, 2017Dear Amy, (I am putting this here, rather than in an e-mail to you because I want to help raise awareness about this very useful website that you have developed and to encourage more people to go and take a look and check it out).

- Re: ~500,000 households in the U.S.A. lack adequate water and sanitation - by: muench March 25, 2017I happened to come across this thread just after recently looking at the latest figures for access to water and sanitation in the U.S on Wikipedia.

This person added information and links to WASHwatch to country water profile articl […]
