7 © Plan What is CLTS? Community-Led Total Sanitation A Participatory and Learning Action approach based on stimulating a collective sense of disgust, shame and fear among community members as they confront the crude reality about mass open defecation [environmental contamination] and its negative effects on the entire community.

8 © Plan Underlying Assumptions of CLTS No one can stay unmoved once they discover they are ingesting other peoples or their own faeces; High sense of shame and disgust hold the power to ignite people to take action and use their resources (not subsidy) to stop open defecation and be totally sanitised;

9 © Plan CLTS is Community-led: They lead and everyone in the community is involved; Total: 100% elimination of open defecation & practice of good hygiene; Sanitation: Beyond construction of toilet; Collective action: Often locally decided and not dependent on external subsidies and prescriptions of solutions.

10 © Plan CLTS: Sequence of Key Steps Pre-triggering: buy-in, selection of sites, training, introduction and building rapport; Triggering: Sanitation profile –mapping- calculation of quantities-transect walk- flow- channels-effects-costs-ignition moment-action planning; Post-triggering: implementation of Action plans, follow-up, monitoring and documentation. Scaling up: Going beyond CLTS…what next?

13 © Plan Background to CLTS in Kenya With previous pace and approaches, it would take >100 years and >$30 billion to achieve total sanitation in RESA; Plan RESA ins searched of cost effective, fast and sustainable approaches for accelerating sanitation work; Came across CLTS-Origins in Bangladesh and tried with documented positive results in South East Asia seemed promising; Plan decided to adopt CLTS as the major approach for sanitation promotion.

18 © Plan Achievements Change in mindsets & leading to collective action =Increased coverage & use: Kilifi from 30% to 48% between May 2008-June 2010, Homa Bay- 66 triggered 29 ODF and Busia- 380 triggered 56 ODF World Toilet Day celebrated to mark ODF for the past 3 years Media buy-in and coverage e.g. partnership with KBC series of Vitimbi; Networks and partnerships on CLTS have emerged; Children and youth participation in CLTS-School-Led Total Sanitation; Funding for CLTS, scaling-up, capacity building, advocacy research & documentation (e.g. DGIS/Plan Netherlands 8.5 million Euro in 8 African Countries; CLTS moving from Rural to Urban and to Schools; Establishment of a CLTS unit within Plan Kenya- responding demands Systematic documentation of CLTS experiences – PLA CLTS Issue, Tales of Shit in Africa

20 © Plan Challenges Uptake slow/not the same in the different regions Plan Kenya works; Conflicting approaches by different agencies in the sanitation sector. The allowance culture: Some are in it for the out of pocket-not passionate or committed; Doubt and scepticism among sanitation professionals Lack of willingness to let go our professionalism-wanting the communities to start at the top of the ladder; Weak M&E and reporting within the mandated institutions;

21 © Plan Challenges – contd Dependency syndrome in some areas emanating from previous approaches; Finding good facilitators: Not all trained find it easy and/or develop the passion to take up the CLTS challenges; Triggering without adequate mechanisms for follow-up and support; Inadequate support and mentoring of natural leaders; Private sector inability to come-up with affordable technological innovations-dependency! CLTS health outcomes/Impact research of CLTS intervention on diarrhea control and reduction in child mortality?
