Achieving Open Defecation Free Gulariya Municipality: Experiences from a Project of Practical Action and Enpho in Bardiya District, Nepal


This document sets out the steps, process and experiences from a two year, UK Department for International Development funded project, managed by Practical Action, and implemented in partnership with Environmental and Public Health Organisation (ENPHO) to create an open defecation free (ODF) environment in Gulariya Municiaplity in Bardiya District, Nepal. It reflects on the adaptations made to a standard CLTS process, to make it applicable to an urban / peri-urban context. This report complements earlier work to document the same process in a very different urban context of Nakuru town in Kenya (Pasteur and Prabhakaran, 2015). This work and its documentation underlines Practical Action's commitment to working on issues of water and sanitation for the urban poor, bringing together our long-standing expertise in supporting urban poor communities, with innovative WASH approaches and partners.
