WSSCC is supporting the CLTS Foundation in its arrangement of the 4th annual workshop on “Sustainability of Rural Sanitation Initiatives in India.” 

The event is being held at the BNR Hotel Ranchi, Jharkhand, India, 8-11 December, 2012, and will draw some 60 sanitation and hygiene professionals from around the world to learn more about Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS), an increasingly popular and accepted approach to helping people move from open defecation to fixed-place defecation. 

The workshop is being arranged in collaboration with Government of Jharkhand, Government of India and the Water and Sanitation Programme of the World Bank.  

CLTS pioneer Kamal Kar is one of the leaders of the workshop, and the choice of Jharkhand as the location is practical. There, WSSCC has been implementing its Global Sanitation Fund using the CLTS approach. On 31 January 2012 the Indian GSF programme reported25,000 people having attained improved toilets through CLTS-related interventions, and the same number living in ODF environments. By 30 June these figures grew to 388,434 and 42,150, respectively. NRMC India Private Ltd., who serves as the Executing Agency for the GSF in India, has worked with UNICEF and the World Bank Water and Sanitation Programme (WSP) in Jharkhand, where sub-grantees have fanned out across the state to do community-level sanitation promotion primarily via CLTS.
