Ghana can exceed the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) target of 54 per cent on sanitation by 2015 through effective implementation of the Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) concept. Dr Kamal Kar, founder of CLTS Foundation said this would require behavioural change among Ghanaians towards sanitation, especially open defecation, based on analysis and understanding of the situation.  He was addressing a high-level meeting on CLTS in Accra. The meeting organised by the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development was to deliberate on critical issues of sanitation, its effect on economic and social development to engender better understanding of CLTS among development partners and other stakeholders in sanitation..UNICEF, CIDA Relief international, USAID and AusAID and representation of the Ministries of Finance and Economic Planning, Local Government and Rural Development and Environment and Science were among the participants in the meeting.
