Information and Communication Technology for Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS): A Landscape Assessment


The USAID Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene Partnerships and Learning for Sustainability (WASHPaLS) Project carried out this landscape assessment of information communication technology (ICT) use cases in the water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) sector as an initial step toward understanding the demand and potential use for development or customization of a technology solution to support large-scale implementation and/or monitoring of CLTS programs. The purposes of the assessment are to: 1) understand how mobile-enabled ICTs are currently being used in WASH programming generally and CLTS programming in particular; 2) document lessons learned and opportunities for ICTs to support both monitoring and implementation of CLTS; and 3) provide insights into the overall process of developing or adapting a ICT solution to the needs of CLTS implementers, governments and communities practicing CLTS.

This assessment was made possible by contributions from Marnie Valdivia, Siobhan Girling, Jonathan Annis, and Morris Israel (Tetra Tech), Dr. Jeff Albert (Aquaya), and Hannah Taukobong (Iris Group, Inc.), Elizabeth Jordan and Jesse Shapiro (USAID); and others.
