Innovations for Urban Sanitation: Adapting Community-led Approaches

This guide, which can also be found on, has been developed in response to calls from practitioners for support in using CLTS approaches in urban settings – which is referred to throughout as Urban Community-Led Total Sanitation (U-CLTS). Although CLTS is already being implemented in urban settings, practitioners highlight a lack of clarity on many of the possible practical steps involved. This book is helpful in promoting community-led urban sanitation approaches amidst the Covid-19 outbreak. It is included in the Practical Action Publishing WASH Collection for Covid-19, which is part of a bigger series of collections supporting global response to Covid-19. Relevant and updated materials are constantly added to the collections.
