Focus on Community-Led Total Sanitation – Water Currents, April 18, 2017
Welcome to the inaugural external issue of Water Currents, a biweekly publication from USAID’s Water Team.
Water Currents aims to replace the WASHplus Weekly, which ceased publication in 2016 when the WASHplus Project ended.
Each issue of Water Currents will have a special focus on a featured topic, as well as an update on recent water sector news.
This issue highlights community-led total sanitation (CLTS), including selected 2017 reports and articles on the subject, as well as coverage on open defecation and behavior change and recent CLTS videos. Our “In the News” section features recent articles on household water treatment, WASH training materials and other water matters.
