5 things you should learn from implementing a rural sanitation project in Cambodia


Key learning and lessons from a review of the GSF-supported Cambodia Rural Sanitation and Hygiene Programme (CRSHIP).

The Cambodia Rural Sanitation and Hygiene Improvement Programme (CRSHIP), supported by the Global Sanitation Fund (GSF), works to increase sustained access to improved sanitation and promote good hygiene practices in rural communities. Plan International USA reviewed the programming experience within the Cambodia Rural Sanitation and Hygiene Improvement Program and developed this synthesis of insights, based on an array of programme and performance-related reports released during the first three years of the programme. This review is designed to assist local advocacy efforts to bring Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) to scale and share emerging themes and lessons learned to date from programming experience of relevance to other implementing actors in the WASH sector.
