Plan Nepal (2007)

In its effort to increase sanitation coverage, Plan Nepal initiated, in partnerships with NGOs,three community led total sanitation (CLTS) programmes in 2004 and increased the number to 25 clusters by 2005. The programmes are found in all six of Plan’s working districts – Morang, Sunsari, Bara, Rautahat, Makwanpur and Banke and fall under all four of its PUs. The programme was started following a hands‐on training conducted by Dr. Kamal Kar, a CLTS expert from Bangladesh for the field staff of Plan Nepal and its partner organisations. In order to evaluate the CLTS approach, process, outcomes, and impact and to systematically document the implementation of CLTS programme, an assessment was carried out in June and July 2006 by a team of external consultants from Community Development Forum (CODEF), a NGO working in water and sanitation in Nepal. The field assessment, which was conducted in all clusters, addressed issues like project relevance, efficiency, effectiveness, impact, sustainability and equity.
