The CLTS Knowledge Hub is excited to announce the launch of its new book Sustainable Sanitation for all: experiences, challenges and innovations, published by Practical Action.

Sustainability is currently one of the key challenges in CLTS and wider WASH practice. Achievement of Open Defecation Free (ODF) status is now recognised as only the first stage in a long process of change and sanitation improvement, with new challenges emerging every step of the way. A new CLTS Knowledge Hub book Sustainable Sanitation for All: Experiences, Challenges and Innovations explores current experience, practices, challenges, innovations and insights. The book is published by Practical Action and is available for purchase in hardcopy or as a free download from the CLTS website.

The launch on Tuesday 12th July 2016 will take place at an evening side event at the WEDC Conference. CLTS Knowledge Hub members will introduce the book and several of the authors will present their chapters, covering themes such as behaviour change, equity and inclusion, physical sustainability and sanitation marketing, monitoring and verification and post-ODF engagement of governments, NGOs and other stakeholders. There will be time for Q&A and discussion at the end.

"... a state of the art check-in on the problems that we face and the solutions that have been found around the world. Every sanitation practitioner, indeed anyone interested in sustainable approaches to public health, needs to read this thoughtful book." (Val Curtis, Director of the Environmental Health Group at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine)

"This book puts forward a mix of innovative thinking based on experience and evidence that is useful and relevant whether working with communities on programmes or with governments on policy." (Sanjay Wijesekera, Chief of Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene, Unicef)

"The book tackles the next frontier: how to utilize the power of CLTS to create permanent facilities and improved service levels. The volume captures experiences and analysis which sorely need to be understood and built upon if we are to induce the much-delayed sanitation revolution that transformed life in Europe." (Piers Cross, Senior Advisor to Sanitation and Water for All, former Global Manager of the World Bank Water and Sanitation Program)
