Community-Led Total Sanitation: Plan International’s Experience

By: Tezera Fisseha

Plan Ethiopia

Presented at

The Second African Conference on Sanitation and Hygiene

18–20 February 2008, Durban, South Africa


Introduction

  • Plan is a Child-Centered Community Development Organization

  • Program approach focuses on Community empowerment including sanitation and hygiene.

  • Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) introduced in plan program areas in South East Asia in early 2000, to Africa in 2007.


Rationales

  • It is about total sanitation

  • It is community-led – it is an effective community empowerment process

  • It is about changes in people's attitude/behavior and practices

  • It is about shifting power relationships between communities and experts- communities are mentors and actors NOT learners

  • It is paradigm shift from counting number of pit latrines to counting the number of ODF villages.

  • It triggers immediate actions, Collective


Implementation & progress

  • Community self analysis of sanitation and hygiene behaviors /practices facilitated by trained facilitators


Visual situation analysis


Communities themselves decide to end open defecation


Community action plan


Actions

Social/Community Engineers


Progresses and achievements

  • In Plan Ethiopia, operation areas, many villages (50 to 80 households each) aggressively implementing CLTS

  • At least 100 villages have achieved 100% coverage plus improvements in hygiene behavior.

  • Fura, with 21 villages, achieved and declared ODF environment

Conclusion

  • Works best

    • where there is conducive policy and strategy environment

    • where PHC infrastructure is strong

  • Demands paradigm shift

    • Organizational culture/behavior

    • New competencies and skills

    • Requires redefining experts’ JDs/TORs

    • Not number of latrines but of ODF villages
