In order to achieve universal safely managed sanitation across Africa by 2030 the scale and pace will need to increase drastically. As the African sanitation community reassemble for AfricaSan 5 we hope the opportunity is grasped to rejuvenate commitments to those who still lack the fundamental human right of access to sanitation and hygiene facilities.
This edition of Frontiers of CLTS draws on the discussions held across two regional Africa events in 2018, highlighting the challenges faced by programme implementers (both government and non-government staff) at different levels in relation to the Ngor Commitments and the achievement of universal access to safely managed sanitation. A range of initiatives are presented that show promise in addressing these challenges, along with recommended priority actions.

Le CLTS Knowledge Hub, basé à l'Institute of Development Studies, WaterAid, le WSSCC et l'UNICEF ont co-organisé un atelier régional à Saly, au Sénégal, du 25 au 28 juin 2018, avec l'aide de l'AGETIP. L'événement a réuni les personnes impliquées dans la programmation de l'eau, l'assainissement et l'hygiène (EAH) en milieu rural dans 14 pays de la région (Bénin, Burkina Faso, Cameroun, Gambie, Ghana, Libéria, Mali, Mauritanie, Niger, Nigéria, République Démocratique du Congo (RDC), Sénégal, Tchad et Togo) aux côtés d'experts travaillant aux niveaux régional et mondial. Durant les quatre jours de l'atelier, les participants ont échangé leurs expériences, leurs innovations, les problèmes rencontrés, les recherches entreprises et ils ont recensé les manques de connaissances et discuter des moyens d'aller de l'avant dans le but d'améliorer les capacités et d'enrichir le savoir.
Cette note d'apprentissage présente les problèmes communs identifiés dans la région ; elle résume certaines des discussions qui se sont tenues tout au long de la semaine, met en avant les pratiques prometteuses et considère les actions prioritaires pour aller de l'avant.
The CLTS Knowledge Hub, based at the Institute of Development Studies, WaterAid, WSSCC and UNICEF co-convened a regional workshop in Saly, Senegal, 25th-28th June 2018 with support from AGETIP. The event brought together those engaged in rural WASH programming from 14 countries across the region (Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Chad, Democratic Republic Congo (DRC), Gambia, Ghana, Liberia, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, and Togo) alongside experts working at regional and global levels. Over the course of four days participants shared latest experiences, innovations, challenges and research, mapped knowledge gaps and discussed ways forward with the aim of improving capacity and knowledge.
This learning brief presents the common challenges identified across the region, summarises some of the discussions held, highlights some promising practices and considers priority actions moving forward.
Headline recommendations from the brief include:
Urgently advocate to increase domestic resource allocation
Create specific country-level strategies for reaching the 'last mile'
Use of evidence on last mile demographics and practices to encourage inclusion
Avoid rigid policies and practices and be less dogmatic about what approaches are used
Use area-wide approaches
Systematise post-ODF interventions
Identify, strengthen and promote local technological solutions
Conduct formative research on the 'last mile', sustainable local solutions and long-term behaviour change
Strengthen knowledge management initiatives to better support the region, especially Francophone region.
Collect, make publically available and respond to data
This paper summarises the reflections from a 12 country policy dialogue on financing WASH services to2030 hosted by the Collaborative African Budget Reform Initiative (CABRI) in November 2017 in collaboration with Oxford Policy Management. The dialogue brought together director-level representatives from Ministries of Finance and Line Ministries with responsibilities for Water and/or Sanitation. This paper provides a brief summary of the current funding and financing trends in WASHbefore turning to the key reflections of stakeholders during the dialogue. The reflections of the senior government officials responsible for WASH indicate that additional investment is needed for the sector through governments own contributions and through innovative financing mechanisms.
In most countries, subsoil oil, gas and mining resources are the property of citizens and are managed on their behalf by governments. The projects that contracts govern typically last longer than most governments. Estimated oil, gas and mineral rents totalled $1.7 trillion globally in 2015 - 1.7% of global GDP in that year and more than the total GDP of the world's poorest countries. Oxfam believes that citizens have a right to know the full terms under which oil, gas and mineral resources are developed and sold, to enable them to assess whether the public benefits claimed are likely to become reality.
Contract disclosure in the oil, gas and mining sector is an emerging global norm. Given the progress by governments, international financial institutions and the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative, Oxfam's research for this report aimed fill the information gap on corporate policies on contract disclosure. It provides a snapshot of current corporate policies based on a survey of 40 leading oil, gas and mining companies.

This study examines the extent to which interventions supporting young people's access to employment or entrepreneurship opportunities are tailored to address gendered barriers. Its area of focus is Africa, the region prioritized by the Mastercard Foundation in its work. Analysis of primary research conducted with a selection ofMastercard Foundation programs, and secondary research on a broader range of interventions, forms the basis of the report. The primary research was conducted with four Mastercard Foundation partnerships operating in Tanzaniaand Uganda, supplemented by conversations with staff working with those partnerships, and with three other partnerships operating in South Africa, Zambia, and across Africa. The secondary research focused on evaluations and other studies from a larger range of Mastercard Foundation youth livelihoods and youth financial servicespartnerships across the continent, as well as from other (non-Mastercard Foundation) youthlivelihoods programs.
UHAI EASHRI is an indigenous activist fund supporting the struggle for the human rights oflesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and intersex (LGBTI) and sex worker Africans. As we look back on the past two years, we remain grateful to our funding and grantee partners who have consistentlybelieved in our funding philosophy and most importantly, to our movements that persist in their resilience and remained unbowed.
In 2015, the EU and its member states set up the 'EU Emergency Trust Fund for stability and addressing root causes of irregular migration and displaced persons in Africa' to promote stability and economic opportunities and to strengthen resilience.
An Oxfam analysis of all the projects approved under the instrument shows that its flexible nature has generated both opportunities and risks. This briefing argues that the Fund lacks sufficient checks and balances to ensure that European interests do not take precedence over the needs of the people that aid is intended to help.
This paper sets out to provide an analysis of what is currently known about the links between climate change and violent conflict, and the policy debates currently taking place on this issue. The purpose is to guide Christian Aid's own practice, and to inform our recommendations to international institutions and donors.
The monthly dapivirine ring, the first discrete, long-acting, HIV prevention product designed specifically for women, will soon be on the market.* Women account for over half of adult HIV infections in sub-Saharan Africa, but have few HIV prevention options that they can control. This new product is critical to empower women to protect themselves and to make progress towards the elimination of HIV.
Developed with the OPTIONS Consortium, a five-year USAID and PEPFAR initiative, and the International Partnership for Microbicides, this report is for national governments, donors, implementers, and advocates who are planning for the launch of the monthly dapivirine ring.
*Pending approval by regulatory authorities.
Women and girls need HIV prevention options they can fully control. The dapivirine ring will enable more women to protect themselves against transmission without requiring action from a partner.
The ring offers 4 major benefits: it is highly acceptable to users, it is effective in reducing HIV transmission, and it is safe and easy to use.
The dapivirine ring could prevent over half a million new HIV infections in sub-Saharan Africa by 2030.

A well-facilitated Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) programme that pro-actively considers and involves people who might be disadvantaged has been shown to have many benefits. A lack of this can and will often have negative impacts and make programmes and ODF unsustainable.
This issue of Frontiers of CLTS looks at who should be considered potentially disadvantaged, how they can effectively participate and what may be needed to address diverse needs in order to make processes and outcomes sustainable and inclusive. Using a range of examples from GSF programmes that were part of a recent study on Equality and Non-Discrimination, it explores the challenges that may occur and concludes with suggested good practices that will strengthen the processes to the benefit of all.
