In July a webinar took place with the title “What constitutes success for CLTS? – Measuring community outcomes and behavior change”. The recordings of this webinar are now available as sound files (podcasts) and as videos. In the webinar, experts working with funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s “Building Demand for Sanitation” Programme shared their insights on this topic.
It is startling that there seems to be no consensus about what constitutes success for CLTS programmes. Is 30% an acceptable success rate? How can these rates be optimized? What should be our response to communities that do not become defecation free?
An upcoming webinar will ponder these questions. The title of the webinar is: ‘What constitutes success for CLTS? – Measuring community outcomes and behavior change’
It will take place on Wednesday 22 July 2015 at 15:00 London time (BST/GMT+1).
The new Sustainable Development Goals will encourage a stronger focus on behavior all along the sanitation chain. Therefore, we are at the right time to consider what we can do more, better or differently. We invite you to join an interactive webinar where experts working in the “Building Demand for Sanitation Programme” of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will share their insights. The panelists of the webinar include:
- Ada-Oko Williams, Technical Support Manager, Sanitation and Hygiene, WaterAid UK
- Darren Saywell, Senior Director, Water, Sanitation and Health, Plan International USA (CLTS research project)
- Hans-Joachim Mosler, Head of Environmental and Health Psychology, Eawag (CLTS research project)
- Jonny Crocker, Research Assistant at The Water Institute at UNC, Chapel Hill
The webinar will be run as a panel interview followed by audience and panelists interactions. This webinar, open to all, is being organized under the Knowledge Management initiative of the Building Demand for Sanitation (BDS) program, by Euforic Services, the SuSanA secretariat and the Stockholm Environment Institute.
Further information and a discussion before and after the webinar is available here on the SuSanA discussion forum.
