‘Improved’ WatSan

Jeremy Allouche and Lyla Mehta (of IDS) have written an interesting piece in the Eldis Environment News Group Exchange Blog (17 September): Water and sanitation for all: the need to go beyond numbers and beyond the MDGs, which questions the appropriateness of the JMP definitions of improved WatSan − though I wouldn’t go as far as suggesting that CLTS interventions might count as ‘improved’ if they are “just be pits in the ground, and not with slabs or pour flushes”. That apart, it’s a good read.
