Community-led Total Sanitation in Lao PDR: Findings from an Implementation Case Study, 2015.
Plan International supports Community-led Total Sanitation (CLTS) implementation in a number of districts in the Lao People’s Democratic Republic (PDR). In this learning brief, we review Plan International Laos’ CLTS activities.
We found that they have formed a strong working relationship with the national government and directly involved district government and community leaders in CLTS implementation.
Plan International Laos and other sanitation practitioners can support further progress by strengthening community selection for CLTS, expanding the cadre of CLTS trainers, and advocating for formal recognition and accountability of district government in the CLTS process.
