Published on: 24/03/2014

Summarising the key findings agreed upon by the participants of the three‐day workshop

A summary of the key findings agreed upon by the participants of the three‐day workshop 'Towards Sustainable Total Sanitation' held in Benin in November 2013. It aims to share and engage with the sector to set the ground for rural sanitation services that work.

How can Community-led Total Sanitation (CLTS) and other programmatic approaches be integrated into a service-led rural sanitation delivery?

 

This was the topic that attracted around 70 practitioners from 16 different countries to Cotonu, Benin in November 2013 for a Learning and Exchange workshop 'Towards Sustainable Total Sanitation'. The workshop was organised by IRC in partnership with WaterAid, SNV and UNICEF.

The key findings of the workshop are presented in this booklet, which is divided into four categories, covering the four conditions to trigger a service:

  • Strengthening the enabling environment
  • Demand creation and advocacy to change behaviour
  • Strengthening the supply chain, and
  • Appropriate incentives and financial arrangements.

This booklet is also available in French.

La brochure est disponible en français.
