Although Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) was designed for and is predominantly being used in rural settings, there are a growing number of cases that have adopted a CLTS approach in peri-urban and urban areas.
CLTS has been described as an attractive possibility for urban areas. However, it has also been argued that it is only suited to smaller, rural and homogenous communities and even counterproductive in villages with low social capital. This webinar will draw on global experience and propose that urban CLTS does not mean strictly following processes and tools that have been used in rural areas but adhering to similar principles and designing an intervention based on the context of a specific town or city.
Jamie Myers from the CLTS Knowledge Hub will be presenting his research in this area. Other speakers to be confirmed.
