CLTS Knowledge Hub Learning Brief 2

Tracking Progress and Sustainability: Monitoring, Verification and Certification of CLTS

Published on 1 January 2017

Monitoring, verification and certification are essential for ensuring the success and sustainability of Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) efforts. Monitoring assesses and documents progress towards and the sustainability of Open Defecation Free (ODF) status. Verification and certification provide a goal for communities and
help implementing agencies and governments to ensure consistency and reliability of desired outcomes.

This Learning Brief considers the issues and challenges that are emerging around monitoring, verification and certification as CLTS is being used at scale. Whilst there has been progress, significant gaps in practice still remain. These would benefit from further innovation and lesson learning. This document complements a longer report, Keeping Track: CLTS Monitoring, Certification and Verification, accessible at http://www.communityledtotalsanitation.org/resource/keepingtrack-clts-monitoring-certification-and-verification .
