Lukenya Notes: Taking CLTS to Scale with Quality

September 2011

CLTS is now irreversibly being taken to scale with unstoppable momentum. Going slow is not an option. As a matter of urgency, therefore, we came together to brainstorm ideas, and compile and collate evidence and experience, and present these without delay.

The Lukenya Notes are a collection of experiences and key recommendations from the meeting of community-led total sanitation (CLTS) practitioners hosted by the Institute of Development Studies (IDS) and held in Lukenya, Nairobi, in July 2011, immediately after the AfricaSan3 meeting.

The aim of the workshop was to focus on the key challenges we all face in taking CLTS to scale. Insights, case studies and options are clustered by themes, which emerged from workshop brainstorming.

The workshop which gave rise to these notes was supported by a grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
