Frontiers of CLTS issue 3: Disability- making CLTS fully inclusive

The CLTS Knowledge Hub at IDS is pleased to announce the publication of Issue 3 of our Frontiers of CLTS series- Disability: Making CLTS fully inclusive. This issue was co-authored by Jane Wilbur (WAterAid) and Hazel Jones (WEDC)

About this issue:
CLTS aims at total sanitation. For that it has to be inclusive. There are ethical reasons for this, but the bottom line is that while any open defecation continues, all are affected.

This issue of Frontiers of CLTS focuses on people with disabilities and particular needs for access to sanitation. People affected tend not to be present at triggering, to lack voice in the community, to have their needs overlooked, and may even be hidden by their families. This issue outlines the reality of the experiences of disabled people, the varied nature of their needs and how they can be met. It includes practical recommendations for people engaged in CLTS to make the different phases and processes of CLTS more inclusive.

Please feel free to share it widely with colleagues and contacts. All previous issues and their translations can be found here .

Best wishes,

Petra Bongartz, for the CLTS Knowledge Hub
