ABOUT CLTS: Community Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) is a basic sanitation approach that has been adopted to help combat open  defecation in Ghana.

How it works: the approach is used to mobilise communities to completely eliminate open defecation. Communities are then facilitated to conduct their own assessment and analysis of open defecation (OD) and take their own action to become ODF (open defecation free).

Since its introduction 2010 in the Country, the number of organisations implementing CLTS has increased, these organisations include Global Communities, Plan Ghana SNV, RING, WaterAid, Catholic Relief Services, Care International, World Vision etc. Reports indicates that the implementation had moved from 300 communities in 3 regions to 5,000 communities in 9 regions in 2015.

While the approach has successfully been implemented in some districts there still remains some challenges that need to be addressed.
