Call for applications: Financing for the poorest: desk based review - by: Petra
The CLTS Knowledge Hub is seeking a researcher to conduct a desk-based review into evidence and information pertaining to financing options for the poorest. Implementation of CLTS and other water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) programmes tend to fall short of reaching the poorest and most vulnerable and marginalised people within communities, who are often unable to get on let alone climb the sanitation ladder without some form of assistance. Amonst other things, we want to know
• How successful have CLTS and WASH programmes been in reaching the poorest communities and the poorest within communities they target? Are there examples of success? Has there been movement up the sanitation ladder in some of these groups? If there is an assumption of a trickle-down effect within programmes, is this actually happening and how?
• What schemes are currently available within CLTS and WASH programmes for helping the poorest get onto, remain on and move up the sanitation ladder (both financial and non-financial)?
• How successful are the schemes? Are the latrines constructed sustainable, or are they lower quality, or collapse more, leading to reversion to OD and social stigmatisation?
• How can financial mechanisms to help the poorest into CLTS and WASH programmes be integrated in a balanced way to avoid undermining community initiative, behaviour change, fraudulent reporting and short-term incentives?

Please see the attached call for applications for details and circulate this to suitable candidates who may be interested.

Many good wishes,
