Follow-up MANDONA: A field guide for accelerating and sustaining open defecation free communities

Global Sanitation Fund

Follow-up MANDONA (FUM) is an action-oriented, collective approach for post-triggering follow-up visits, as part of Community-Led Total Sanitation. The FUM approach was pioneered by MIARINTSOA NGO – a sub-grantee of the GSF-supported ‘Fonds d’Appui pour l’Assainissement’ programme in Madagascar. FUM brings the entire community together for a self-analysis of their sanitation situation and helps them immediately create models that prevent the ingestion of faeces. The approach then harnesses the power of Natural Leaders to replicate these models across the community, which includes helping those that are least able, in order to advance to open defecation free status. By focusing on sustainable behaviour change, FUM is also a useful tool for addressing issues surrounding ‘slippage’, which relates to returning to previous unhygienic behaviours. Illustrated with photos, case studies, and tips, this handbook provides a practical, step-by-step guide for how CLTS practitioners around the world can implement FUM in their own contexts.Follow-up MANDONA - Un guide de terrain pour accélérer et soutenir le mouvement des communautés exemptes de défécation à l’air libre grâce à une approche d’Assainissement total piloté par la communauté (ATPC)

National Coordinators Report – Highlights 2015

Collaboration

Sixteen National Coordinators work within WASH coalitions in their home countries, leading WSSCC’s work, serving as coalition heads and spokespersons, and advocating on WASH issues. National Coordinators carry out national and local level networking, knowledge management, advocacy and communications activities, and working on facilitating and implementing Global Sanitation Fund (GSF) programme activities. Working with partners and networks, they aim to position sanitation and hygiene onto the national agenda and prioritize specific investments for sanitation and hygiene. This report shows how WSSCC's National Coordinators have increased the visibility of WSSCC in their respective countries and how their collective commitment has contributed to greater commitments from rights holders, duty bearers, the private sector and partners.
