Sanitation Drive to 2015 Planner’s Guide

The Planner’s Guide was developed for anyone interested in running a campaign that calls for an end to open defecation and to improve sanitation at the country, regional or local level.  The theme of the Planner’s Guide is “Big or Small – Sanitation for all” and is meant to inspire creative visual and textual interpretations. It is easily adaptable for different cultures, languages and contexts. Translations into additional languages will be available soon. Click here to see full report in English or French.
