    Community Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) stresses the elimination of the practice of open defecation in communities. CLTS initiatives encourage community self-analysis of existing defecation patterns and threats, and promote predominantly local solutions to reduce and ultimately eliminate the practice of open defecation. Instead of focusing on latrine construction as a goal, CLTS helps communities and individuals understand the health risks of open defecation and use disgust as a “trigger” to promote collective and individual action, which ultimately lead to locally-built, low-cost household latrines. The ultimate goal of CLTS is that communities achieve and maintain “open defecation-free” status.
