Implementation of CLTS in Central and West Africa Countries: Financial Constraints and Challenges

SLH Rapid Action Learning Papers
July 2018

Innovative ways of raising resources must be adopted.

This Sanitation and Hygiene Hunter-Gatherer Thematic Note discusses the financial constraints and challenges faced in the West and Central Africa region. The situation of sanitation remains a concern in many countries in the region. Although governments in West and Central African countries have adopted CLTS as one approach to address the issue, substantial achievement is yet to be realised.

It is estimated that about 10 million people in the region need to stop open defecation each year until 2030 in order to reach the Sustainable Development Goals. One of the bottlenecks identified is the low level of financial resources allocated to sanitation sector by governments.
