Nigeria: Effectiveness And Sustainability Of Community-led Total Sanitation

case study thumbnail

From 2012 to 2016, Action Against Hunger worked with local authorities to trigger 138 communities in Yobe State, Northern Nigeria, using the Community-Led Total Sanitation methodology. The objective of this approach is to empower the community to realize the negative impacts of open defecation on health and wellbeing, and thus mobilize itself to eliminate open defecation and improve sanitation with limited external intervention. Mid-2017, Action Against Hunger conducted a review of the communities to draw lessons from the effectiveness and sustainability of the approach.
