Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

The CLTS Knowledge Hub along with UNICEF, SNV and the Institute of Sustainability co-convened a workshop Synergies, Trade-Offs and Support Mechanisms and Leaving no one behind- ensuring equality and non-discrimination in sanitation on Wednesday 7th March 2018 as part of the WASH Futures Conference in Brisbane. The full day session looked at current thinking on the phasing and combination of other approaches, internal and external support mechanisms and how these interact with CLTS and other rural WASH approaches in practice. Priority areas to share and learn on included: 

- What other approaches are being used to strengthen CLTS programmes? Are they effective at supporting the most vulnerable?
- How do you insure that the introduction of other approaches, including those with external support mechanism, does not have negative impacts on the CLTS process?
- How best to identify the most disadvantaged? What systems are currently being used? Are they effective? What is a realistic balance between community-led approaches and national systems?
- What are the different types of support needed? What form should the support take? At what point in time should it be introduced? Who should it be introduced by?  
- What approaches are replicable at scale? Are they able to be implemented through government systems?
- What are the evidence and knowledge gaps?
