Innovation Description

Community-led total sanitation (CLTS) is an approach to sanitation promotion that has spread to countries across South Asia, Latin America and Africa over the past 15 years. This approach seeks to eliminate open defecation and encourage the construction and use of sanitation facilities through “triggering” or grassroots mobilization of communities. When successful, triggering promotes a community-wide commitment to becoming open-defecation free (ODF).
