Testing CLTS Approaches for Scalability: Niger Learning Brief
Plan International supports Community-led Total Sanitation (CLTS) implementation in two departments (districts) in Niger. In this learning brief, we review Plan International Niger's activities. We found that Plan International Niger is gradually building capacity for CLTS at the district and local levels, which could help to realize greater progress in triggered communities. Plan International Niger and other sanitation practitioners can support further progress by formalizing the role of technical service committees, advocating for the standardization of benchmarks for achieving open defecation free status, and scaling-up village level financing and self-help initiatives to make high quality latrines more affordable.
