Abstract

This evaluation examines a broad national programme of ‘community-led total sanitation’ (CLTS) style sanitation interventions conducted in Timor-Leste by the government, NGOs and multi-lateral and bi-lateral stakeholders from 2012 to 2020. It produces evidence on the results of the CLTS approach in Timor-Leste to inform decision-making on potential adjustments needed in order to achieve the 2020 open defecation free (ODF) target and to ensure that ODF status is sustained.

Description

The purpose of this country-led evaluation is to produce evidence on the results of the CLTS approach in Timor-Leste, implemented by the government and its partners, to inform decision-making on potential adjustments needed in order to achieve the ODF target and to ensure that ODF status is sustained.

In particular, the evaluation seeks:

  1. To understand what are the enabling environment, demand and supply factors from 2002 to 2012 that led to CLTS being adopted in 2012 as the main strategy to stop open defecation in the National Basic Sanitation Policy (NBSP).
  2. To document and analyze the process of CLTS execution since the adoption of the NBSP, including what each implementing partner did, where, when, and how, and covering enabling environment, demand and supply aspects.
  3. To examine the qualitative and quantitative results of CLTS since the adoption of the NBSP.
