Low sanitation coverage in India means that increasing energy must be applied to the issue to accelerate coverage. There are problems associated with previous and
current approaches, especially in generating sustainability. Accepting that community ownership is vital, and that achieving open defecation free areas is the aim, the issue of subsidy, especially to the ultra poor, remains an open question. Sustainable Community Owned Total Sanitation (SCOTS) is an approach built on an analysis of the
strengths and weaknesses of Community Led Total Sanitation and other approaches. [authors abstract]
