Plan China decided to introduce the CLTS approach in their programme in Puchang County in Shaanxi province in 2005 and arranged a study visit for programme staff to Bangladesh during March/April of that year. After the exposure visit to CLTS villages in Bangladesh, Plan China decided to train the front line staff of all the four PUs (Programme Units) and especially the staff from the WES (Water and Environmental Sanitation) programme in CLTS. Dr Kamal Kar conducted a visit to the Plan China programme areas in December 2005 to explore the feasibility of introducing CLTS in rural China and to train a group of Plan staff, community leaders, NGO staff and local government technicians in the approach whilst also intended triggering CLTS in a few communities.
