CLTS in Post-Emergency and Fragile States Settings

Frontiers of Sanitation 9
July 2016

CLTS can appear fundamentally mismatched with post-emergency and fragile states contexts… Yet as time progresses, priorities and human capacities change… and conditions for CLTS self-action often improve.

This issue of Frontiers of CLTS explores the potential of and learning around how CLTS – as a community-based, collaborative approach to sanitation behavioural change – can be applied successfully in contexts of fragility and displacement, leading to more communities that  are motivated to maintain and develop safe sanitation practices.
