Community Leave No One Behind: Handbook for Practitioners​

Community Leave No One Behind (CLNOB) is an empowering approach in which communities are convened and facilitated to conduct their own analysis of who has been left out and to encourage community members to take corrective action. Implementing a CLNOB helps to understand the different LNOB categories and gaps at the grass roots level. This people-centred and gender-sensitive approach provides information on who is left out of development projects.

The CLNOB was designed to ensure a participatory method to enable sustained access to safely managed sanitation facilities for people who have been 'left behind' or left out of the first phase of India's national sanitation campaign. A CLNOB pilot was implemented by the Sanitation Learning Hub in collaboration with UNOPS India. This handbook gives practical insights in the process of a CLNOB including different challenges and how to address them. Read ​more»​​​​​​​
