District ODF Brief

The Nandom District is one of the most hopefuls for a district-wide ODF status. As at July 2018, eighty out of the total of 88 communities in the district had been verified as open defecation-free. The district has a population of about 46,000 people. The district authorities implemented the Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) Programme to get this far with support mainly from SNV, IDA and UNICEF. With only 8% of the communities to go, the Nandom District Authorities are likely to declare 100% ODF by the end of 2018.
