Review of CLTS (Community-Led Total Sanitation) Programme and Development of CLTS Toolkits for UNICEF in Myanmar
Hydroconseil continue strengthening its expertise on CLTS. After conducting the evaluation of the UNICEF global WASH Sector “Community Approaches to Total Sanitation (CATS)” and the preparation of the national guide for CLTS and sanitation options in Mauritania for the National Directorate of Sanitation, Hydroconseil is conducting a review of CLTS Programme and will develop CLTS toolkits for UNICEF Myanmar.
The democratisation and openness introduced after the elections in Myanmar at the end of 2010 led to a rapid process of reform.
Given the low level of access to water supply and sanitation facilities and the prevalence of open defecation in rural areas, UNICEF and Save the Children introduced the CLTS concept in 2010. In 2012, the Government of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar began introducing CLTS in fifteen townships across the country with UNICEF support.
Before scaling-up CLTS programme to all townships of the country, the Government has requested UNICEF to support the review of CLTS approach in order to identify success and challenges, strengths and weaknesses and to propose a way forward.
Hydroconseil will carry out this review for UNICEF in order to identify lessons learned, best practices and recommendations for scaling up CLTS activities. Hydroconseil will also review and develop a CLTS toolkit that includes guidelines, training manuals, verification checklists, etc. to provide efficient and practical tools to scale-up CLTS programmes.
