Scaling-up and strengthening community approaches to total sanitation (Community Approaches to Total Sanitation, CATS)

2012 - 2016 • United States Fund for UNICEF, CLTS

Purpose

To assess and analyze CATS innovations and implementation strategies in Malawi and Indonesia, distil and disseminate lessons learned to other UNICEF country programs in Africa and Asia.

Activities

UNICEF is implementing Community Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) or CATS programs in a large number of countries globally, mostly in Africa and Asia. This project is designed to assess and analyze CATS innovations and implementation strategies in two countries - Malawi and Indonesia - and to distil and disseminate lessons learned to other UNICEF country programs in Africa and Asia. Among other goals, the project seeks to meet ambitious Open Defecation Free (ODF) ‘hit rates’ , of 66% and a ‘reach’ target of 85%.

Regionally, UNICEF is engaged in a number of monitoring and learning efforts as part of this project - including:
o Online Monitoring & Evaluation Toolkit
o Supporting Kenya, Mozambique, and Madagascar on CATS reviews and tools development
o Preparing CLTS reviews and case studies
o Learning projects including use of Social Norms Theory, small town approaches to CLTS, regional sanitation supply chains research, and reviews of School Led Total Sanitation
o Learning, and dissemination events

UNICEF is the driving force that helps build a world where the rights of every child are realized. They have the global authority to influence decision-makers, and the variety of partners at grassroots level to turn the most innovative ideas into reality. That makes them unique among world organizations, and unique among those working with the young. They believe that nurturing and caring for children are the cornerstones of human progress. UNICEF was created with this purpose in mind – to work with others to overcome the obstacles that poverty, violence, disease and discrimination place in a child’s path.
