Author

Chambers, Robert

Description

Sanitation and hygiene in rural areas have potential for enhancing wellbeing and contributing to the MDGs. Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) is an approach in which communities conduct their own appraisal and analysis of open defecation (OD) and take their own action to become ODF (open defecation-free). This report examines the effective practices and obstacles encountered as well as issues for review, reflection and research.
