Good practices in community-led total sanitation : Plan’s experience in Uganda 2007 - 2010

Plan’s overall goal on water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) is to see children and youth meet their right to safe, reliable and affordable drinking water supplies, to hygienic sanitation, and to a clean environment. Since this is critical for the survival and development of children, as well as for the economic well-being of their families and communities, Plan pursues this goal by promoting high impact low-cost approaches for sanitation improvement, such as Community-led Total Sanitation (CLTS), and by supporting community and school-led efforts, as well as those of government, the private sector, and civil society partners. Plan introduced CLTS in 2007. Later that year, the initiative was launched in Uganda with training support from Plan Kenya and Network for Water and Sanitation (NETWAS) a Ugandan networking organisation in the water and sanitation sector. This started with a national level training programme targeting district-level government staff, Village Health Teams (VHTs) and selected community members. Plan Uganda then introduced CLTS within supported communities in the districts of Lira, Kamuli, Tororo, and Luwero. [authors abstract]

Abstract

Plan’s overall goal on water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) is to see children and youth meet their right to safe, reliable and affordable drinking water supplies, to hygienic sanitation, and to a clean environment. Since this is critical for the survival and development of children, as well as for the economic well-being of their families and communities, Plan pursues this goal by promoting high impact low-cost approaches for sanitation improvement, such as Community-led Total Sanitation (CLTS), and by supporting community and school-led efforts, as well as those of government, the private sector, and civil society partners. Plan introduced CLTS in 2007. Later that year, the initiative was launched in Uganda with training support from Plan Kenya and Network for Water and Sanitation (NETWAS) a Ugandan networking organisation in the water and sanitation sector. This started with a national level training programme targeting district-level government staff, Village Health Teams (VHTs) and selected community members. Plan Uganda then introduced CLTS within supported communities in the districts of Lira, Kamuli, Tororo, and Luwero. [authors abstract]
