This report is a synthesis of three individual country studies on Community-led Total Sanitation (CLTS) activities in WaterAid programmes in Bangladesh, Nepal and Nigeria in 2008-2009. The studies examined whether CLTS had led to sustainable sanitation behaviour change.Key research questions included: What sanitation behaviour change has taken place?; Are sanitation facilities hygienic?; Does sanitation behaviour change last?; Does sanitation behaviour change result in lasting benefits?; Is there any differential sanitation behaviour change (i.e. do the improvements include all members of the community, even disadvantaged and vulnerable groups)?; Are the poor able to build durable latrines without any external subsidy?; and Has there been any upgrading or improvement of latrines?
