Beyond Construction: Use By All - A Collection of Case Studies From Sanitation and Hygiene Promotion Practitioners in South Asia
But sanitation is a difficult thing to get right, and this rise in commitment, especially when coupled with a rise in delivery speed, could easily lead to more failure, more unused or unsafe latrines and unsustainable services. The practice of monitoring progress, sharing and learning, and continuously seeking to improve programmes based on lessons learnt, is crucial to ensuring success. Of special importance in this, are the practitioners who stand firmly with their feet on the ground, talk from personal experience, and have a direct stake in improving their programmes. These practitioners were the participants of this workshop. As can be read in this report, many of the issues they raised have far-reaching policy and strategy implications, and will require not only more research but also concerted advocacy efforts to raise their profile.
