Gender and CLTS - CLTS engagement, outcomes and empowerment in Malagasy communities

Global Sanitation Fund
In order to better understand the link between gender dynamics and the impact of its Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) interventions, the GSF supported a study in a small number of communities in Madagascar in 2015. These communities are in the area covered by the GSF-supported programme in Madagascar, known locally as ‘Fonds d’Appui pour l’Assainissement’ (FAA). This ‘GSF in focus’ case study highlights and reflects on the study.Cette étude examine le lien entre la dynamique du genre et l’initiative d’assainissement total piloté par la communauté (ATPC) dans un petit nombre de communautés malgaches.

A gender case study of the experience and outcomes of FAA CLTS interventions in Madagascar

Global Sanitation Fund
This study explores the role that gender plays in shaping the experience and outcomes of the Fonds D’Appui pour l’assainissement (FAA) Community-led Total Sanitation (CLTS) interventions in Madagascar. Through a qualitative study in four villages in the Itasy region, this study finds that there is a difference in the way women and men actively engage in the CLTS process. Despite this, it finds that gender does not prevent people from realizing the benefits of sanitation and indeed some empowerment outcomes including increased respect, new roles for women and improved voice in the community around sanitation. However, the ability to contribute to decision-making and change gender stereotypes around roles and responsibilities, such as for cleaning and maintaining the toilet, raises questions for women and men’s long-term sanitation facilities and behaviours.

Facilitating “Hands-on” Training Workshops For Community-Led Total Sanitation: A Trainers’ Training ...

Collaboration
Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) has a huge potential for addressing the rural sanitation situation in developing countries, enhancing human well-being, and contributing to the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Spreading rapidly in many countries and regions, the demand for facilitators and trainers of facilitators far exceeds the supply of trainers. "Hands-On” Training Workshops For Community-Led Total Sanitation" is an indispensable guide that meets the requirements of the trainers of CLTS facilitators, future CLTS trainers who are not yet experienced CLTS facilitators, and trainers who wish to train trainers of CLTS facilitator. It guide describes training methodologies that focus on training good facilitators along with supplying tips on how to train trainers of facilitators. These can be found within its three comprehensive parts: Part 1 introduces the CLTS terminology, scope and purpose.

Follow-up MANDONA: A field guide for accelerating and sustaining open defecation free communities

Global Sanitation Fund
Follow-up MANDONA (FUM) is an action-oriented, collective approach for post-triggering follow-up visits, as part of Community-Led Total Sanitation. The FUM approach was pioneered by MIARINTSOA NGO – a sub-grantee of the GSF-supported ‘Fonds d’Appui pour l’Assainissement’ programme in Madagascar. FUM brings the entire community together for a self-analysis of their sanitation situation and helps them immediately create models that prevent the ingestion of faeces. The approach then harnesses the power of Natural Leaders to replicate these models across the community, which includes helping those that are least able, in order to advance to open defecation free status. By focusing on sustainable behaviour change, FUM is also a useful tool for addressing issues surrounding ‘slippage’, which relates to returning to previous unhygienic behaviours. Illustrated with photos, case studies, and tips, this handbook provides a practical, step-by-step guide for how CLTS practitioners around the world can implement FUM in their own contexts.Follow-up MANDONA - Un guide de terrain pour accélérer et soutenir le mouvement des communautés exemptes de défécation à l’air libre grâce à une approche d’Assainissement total piloté par la communauté (ATPC)
