Abstract: A conventional water and sanitation project in northern Mozambique was mostly focused on water provision by default as sanitation got bogged down in providing incentives, such as cement slab provision for the construction of “improved” latrines. Coverage lagged behind as adoption and the expected technology transfer did not take place. Following introduction of the participatory CLTS strategy, sanitation has become the core of the project, reinvigorating it and giving the project staff a renewed sense of purpose. Sanitation is now leading the way, coverage exceeds that of water, communities and government partners are enthused and neighbouring communities are being seen to imitate the example of this infectious strategy. Handwashing has also been added to the CLTS methodology to make it more “complete”.
