New CLTS implementation narrative + video from the Water Institute at UNC and Plan International USA (14/01/2016)

Title: Plan International Ethiopia: Teacher- Facilitated Community-Led Total Sanitation

  • Summary: The Testing CLTS Approaches for Scalability project is a four year, sanitation-focused, operational research project that aims to advance rural sanitation efforts by improving the cost-effectiveness and scalability of the CLTS approach, with a particular focus on the role of local actors. In Ethiopia, the project assesses teacher‐facilitated CLTS as an alternative to the conventional facilitation approach led by health extension workers (HEWs).  This Implementation Narrative accordingly reflects this process and introduces project team analysis of factors that enabled and constrained implementation. It is our aim that, should other practitioner-oriented organizations be interested in applying this adaptation of the CLTS approach, they can do so by following the steps laid out in this report.
