Internal Financing Mechanisms at Village Level: West and Central Africa Region

SLH Rapid Action Learning Papers
July 2018

Set up an internal control system in order to detect weaknesses and failures in time.

This Sanitation and Hygiene Hunter-Gatherer Thematic Note discusses the various village level financing mechanisms in the West and Central Africa region. In the implementation of the CLTS approach, the organisation, the community dynamics and social norms are all important elements in achieving and sustaining open defecation free (ODF) status.

One of the major elements remains the establishment of sustainable and inclusive internal financing mechanisms, which are able to support the needs of all sectors of the community.
