Re: Using a CLTS approach in urban and peri-urban settings

Thanks for your thoughts. I don't think onsite storage is a foregone conclusion with CLTS. If you read the papers on urban adaptations to CLTS, you will see that no one is suggesting pit latrines as the solution there. Please take a look at the Learning Brief and you will find a thorough discussion of what is possible or desirable in different urban and peri urban settings.www.communityledtotalsanitation.org/reso...d-urban-environments

Re: Using a CLTS approach in urban and peri-urban settings

I am grateful for the approach of using CLTS to reduce open defecation. But the technology (on-site storage)which does not ensure truly sanitised or compost of final product is my worry. Developing world would have to rethink of using the technology adopted (Pit latrine). Urine divert dry toilet or dry toilet (UDDT or DT) is a solution to the developing world. Now is the time to rethink, my colleague from developing world.
Thank you

Using a CLTS approach in urban and peri-urban settings

The CLTS Knowledge Hub at the Institute of Development Studies, with the help of Plan International Ethiopia, convened a three day workshop in Addis Ababa. The workshop titled ‘Using a CLTS approach in peri-urban and urban environments’ brought together people who had been involved in urban CLTS programmes to share their varied experiences and discuss what added value a CLTS approach can bring to the urban context..

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.
