Using CLTS in the transition phase from emergency to development - by: ruthmiskelly http://forum.susana.org/component/kunena/5-community-led-approaches-for-example-community-led-total-sanitation-clts/20381-using-clts-in-the-transition-phase-from-emergency-to-development#20381 http://forum.susana.org/component/kunena/5-community-led-approaches-for-example-community-led-total-sanitation-clts/20381-using-clts-in-the-transition-phase-from-emergency-to-development#20381
Context: The town had been destroyed by the war in spring 2014, at which point almost all town residents fled into the UN military base about 5 miles away where a large IDP camp was formed. 2 years later, people from further afield had moved into the town, displaced by the conflict or pulled by the humanitarian aid provided in the area. At the same time, some original town inhabitants had started to return from the IDP camp to live in the town. With almost no existing latrines town, thousands of people moving in, and the looming rainy season, there was fear of a cholera outbreak.

As return of many people to the town indicated transition, donors preferred a sustainable, community-based approach to household sanitation over construction of emergency communal latrines, but permitted in-kind support in terms of provision of the latrine slab and loan of digging tools.

Despite the missing criteria of the existence of an independent community, we looked to the CLTS approach - it seemed to fit best with the resources we had available. We implemented the CLTS triggering activities in 2 neighbourhoods in the town. At the time I left the project it was about the 3rd month after triggering. I am sharing with you below some of the initial successes, challenges and lessons learned.

Successes

- In both neighbourhoods, large groups attended the triggering activities and started digging latrines the following day. By the time I left, there were over 40 latrines under construction.

Challenges

- In neighbourhood 1, once the inhabitants had been triggered, we asked those present to elect leaders from the group to lead them forward through latrine construction. However, as we returned in the days after for the follow-up activities, the leaders quickly defaulted, stating they would not lead without some payment. This made it difficult for us to call the community together to discuss progress, and also to follow-up with every HH which had borrowed digging tools the day after the triggering. At this point, 1 woman volunteered herself to be a leader, since she felt passionate about ending open defecation and did not feel that she needed payment to assist the community in moving forward on this.

- Only providing the latrine slab and loaning digging tools was not sufficient, especially due to the time of the year. We had worked with local artisans to develop a weaved pit lining. However, by the time the participants came to line the pits, the sticks were no longer easily accessible due to the season. We ended up supplying sandbags for the lining. We also provided thick poles for the corners of the latrines and people were requested to contribute the rest of the poles required.

Lessons Learned

- For neighbourhood 2, at the point where the group was triggered, we requested a small number of women to volunteer to become the "community leaders" to lead this activity. We also ensured that at least 1 of the leaders knew the HH location of every HH representative that borrowed pit digging tools. This had success, and we did not struggle from the same roadblocks as with neighbourhood 1.

- Triggering would have had greater likelihood of success if it had been carried out at the beginning of the dry season when natural construction materials were more widely accessible and ensuring plenty of time for latrine construction to be completed before the rainy season.

I would also like to ask others 1) Have you experience in implementing CLTS in the transition phase, particularly when people have been displaced and there is no sense of "community"? I know that many will not feel comfortable with implementation of CLTS in this context and combining it with the in-kind support, therefore I also ask 2) What approaches do you recommend for household sanitation in this context?

New Learning Brief- Tracking Progress and Sustainability: Monitoring, Verification and Certification of CLTS - by: Petra http://forum.susana.org/component/kunena/5-community-led-approaches-for-example-community-led-total-sanitation-clts/20212-new-learning-brief-tracking-progress-and-sustainability-monitoring-verification-and-certification-of-clts#20212 http://forum.susana.org/component/kunena/5-community-led-approaches-for-example-community-led-total-sanitation-clts/20212-new-learning-brief-tracking-progress-and-sustainability-monitoring-verification-and-certification-of-clts#20212 Monitoring, verification and certification are essential for ensuring the success and sustainability of Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) efforts. Monitoring assesses and documents progress towards and the sustainability of Open Defecation Free (ODF) status. Verification and certification provide a goal for communities and help implementing agencies and governments to ensure consistency and reliability of desired outcomes.

This Learning Brief considers the issues and challenges that are emerging around monitoring, verification and certification as CLTS is being used at scale. Whilst there has been progress, significant gaps in practice still remain. These would benefit from further innovation and lesson learning.

Picturing inclusive CLTS Photo Competition - by: Petra http://forum.susana.org/component/kunena/5-community-led-approaches-for-example-community-led-total-sanitation-clts/20036-picturing-inclusive-clts-photo-competition#20036 http://forum.susana.org/component/kunena/5-community-led-approaches-for-example-community-led-total-sanitation-clts/20036-picturing-inclusive-clts-photo-competition#20036
We are looking for photographs that show examples of inclusive CLTS, highlight good practice, depict innovative programming and emphasize the need to ‘reach the one in everyone’.

We invite submission of photos that

  • show an activity that aims at making CLTS inclusive
  • feature an adaptation to a programme, either in terms of processes or infrastuctures that make sanitation inclusive and meet the needs of a specific (normally excluded) group of people
  • tell a story about how challenges around equity and inclusion have been addressed as part of CLTS,
  • illustrate the plight and a corresponding solution of one of the groups of people which often faces exclusion or difficulty in accessing
  • depict a monitoring or verification activity that tracks the inclusiveness of sanitation



The winning entries will be published in a special feature on the CLTS website. Both winning and non-winning photos will be used in publications such as our Frontiers of CLTS series and/or Learning Briefs/Learning Papers, as well as on the website, with full credit to the photographer, so by submitting an image you are giving us permission to use the photo in this way.

Hosted by the Civil Society WASH Fund, this e-Discussion will run from 12 September until 5 October 2016 to explore the role that organisations, particularly Civil Society Organisation (CSOs, or NGOs), play in assisting households, communities and governments to move up the sanitation ladder to ensure the safe and sustainable sanitation for all. Each week a new question will be posed. The e-discussion is facilitated by Mark Ellery.

The objective of this e-discussion is for CSOs and other practitioners to share their experiences of working with households and communities, private and public sector agencies to not only eradicate open defecation but to ensure the safe management of sanitation for all. This e-discussion will seek to understand the role that CSOs and others are currently playing in assisting communities:
• to move from the eradication of open defecation (i.e. triggering the behaviour change of individuals within communities to achieve collective ODF status);
• to improved sanitation for all (i.e. including the proximate, sufficient, affordable and hygienic sanitation facilities for all including children, the poor & disabled);
• to total sanitation (i.e. including the management of fecal sludge, drainage and solid waste services); and
• to ensuring improved health outcomes (i.e. including the regulation and enforcement of environmental health compliance of sanitary facilities).

Using a CLTS approach in urban and peri-urban settings - by: Petra http://forum.susana.org/component/kunena/5-community-led-approaches-for-example-community-led-total-sanitation-clts/18438-using-a-clts-approach-in-urban-and-peri-urban-settings#18438 http://forum.susana.org/component/kunena/5-community-led-approaches-for-example-community-led-total-sanitation-clts/18438-using-a-clts-approach-in-urban-and-peri-urban-settings#18438
The outputs include a 4 page learning brief and a longer learning paper. The paper is not a straight forward record of events but focuses on what were agreed as important stages of an urban CLTS process. Each stage is explained, examples provided and advice given. The intention is not a guidebook but a set of ideas and considerations for those interested in embarking on a similar approach.
