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

This brief summarizes the USAID Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Partnerships and Learning for Sustainability (WASHPaLS) activity that examined CLTS datasets in four countries to quantify the extent to which environmental, demographic, accessibility, and socioeconomic factors affect ODF achievement. In Cambodia, WASHPaLS examined CLTS performance data from the Rural Sanitation and Hygiene Improvement Program (CRSHIP) coordinated by Plan International with funding from the Global Sanitation Fund of the Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council.1 The CRSHIP dataset covered the period 2012-2018 and included 2,204 villages from 275 communes (the smallest division of local government) out of 1,431 communes nationally.
