    • whaT we’re Doing... – cLTs
    • whaT we’re Doing...– hygiene PromoTion for Behaviour change Hand washing Soakaway behind bathhouse & Clean backyard
    • Experience• Community members often refer to the subsidies offered by some development partners.• Innovativeness, affordability, adaptability and appropriateness are critical in sanitation options.• Water and micro-credit are mostly the priorities of rural community members.• Difficult to practice CLTS in large urban communities
    • Challenges• Most places are always bushy and therefore convenient for open defecation to be practiced• Non-harmonisation of approaches and non- commitment to CLTS – Subsidy still goes on by some DCEs, MPs, NGOs,• Limited knowledge/skills in the construction of appropriate cheaper technology options• EIG???
    • Recommendations• CLTS as a national strategy should be vigorously supported and promoted by the District Assemblies and all other stakeholders in sanitation• District Sanitation promotion forum should be organized to harmonize CLTS process in the districts• Integrate EcoSan into sanitation promotion and delivery, especially for institutional latrines
    • Recommendations ...• Intensify follow-up• And for sustainable sanitation for all, communities empowered through CLTS process should be connected with commercially viable producers and suppliers of sanitation solutions
