Targeting Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) to Favorable Contexts: Factors Contributing to the Success of CLTS in Ghana

This brief summarizes the USAID Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Partnerships and Learning for Sustainability (WASHPaLS) activity that examined CLTS datasets in Ghana to quantify the extent to which environmental, demographic, accessibility, and socioeconomic factors affect ODF achievement. WASHPaLS examined CLTS performance data from the UNICEF/Government of Ghana program (1,051 communities), the WASH for Health program delivered by Global Communities (GC) (656 communities), and the Resiliency in Northern Ghana program also delivered by GC (331 communities). The resulting dataset (2,038 communities) covered the period 2014-2019 and included communities from 72 districts (the smallest division of local government) out of 216 nationally.
