New book! Innovations for Urban Sanitation: Adapting Community-led Approaches

The CLTS Knowledge Hub is pleased to announce the launch of its new book Innovations for Urban Sanitation: Adapting Community-led Approaches!

Over half the world’s population now lives in urban areas and a large proportion of them lives without improved sanitation. This book has been developed in response to calls from practitioners for practical guidance on how to mobilise communities and improve different parts of the sanitation chain in urban areas. Urban Community-Led Total Sanitation is potentially an important piece of a bigger puzzle. It offers a set of approaches, tools and tactics for practitioners to move towards safely managed sanitation services. The book provides examples of towns and cities in Africa, South Asia and South-East Asia which have used these approaches.

The book is published by Practical Action and is available for purchase in print or download a PDF copy for free or by individual chapters. More info here. .

Dear ElaineMercer,

I had a problem when I tried to download the publication. Whenever I click download, it leads me to a verification page but nothing happens afterwards. Does anyone has the same problem?

Regards,
Ainul

Dear Ainul,
Please try again. I think it works now. See here:
www.developmentbookshelf.com/doi/book/10.3362/9781780447360

or here: www.communityledtotalsanitation.org/reso...unity-led-approaches

So good to see that this book is available free of charge.

I've included as a citation in the Wikipedia article on CLTS: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Community-led_total_sanitation
If I had more time, I would go through the book with a fine comb and see what else can be utilised to improve that Wikipedia article by using different parts of the book as a reference. Maybe in future some time.

Regards,
Elisabeth
