About the course

More people are affected by the negative impact of poor water supply and sanitation than by war, terrorism, and weapons of mass destruction combined.

Investment in knowledge on water and sanitation is an efficient and effective way to combat waterborne and vector-borne diseases which is a menace in most developing countries.

Community Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) is an innovative way of mobilising communities to completely eliminate open defecation (OD) where they are facilitated to conduct their own appraisal and analysis and take action to become ODF (open defecation free).

Course content

The course will address how CLTS focuses on the behavioural change needed by investing in community mobilisation instead of hardware, and shifting the focus from toilet construction for individual households to the creation of “open defecation-free” villages. The participant will be able to explore on the different ways that CLTS triggers the community’s desire for change, propels them into action and encourages innovation, mutual support and appropriate local solutions, thus leading to greater ownership and sustainability.
