Community Led Total Sanitation
The CLTS project at IDS has spent the last years in a small corner of the Livelihoods Connect website. As the project, its reputation and its reach have grown, calls have grown for it to have its own purpose built website where all its resources and news can be easily sorted and accessed. Because of time constraints we took a phased approach to the web development – beginning with a very simple site that would be ready in time for their annual international gathering. The company partnered with Wave for the design element of the project. They created a custom page design using CLTS images. Their design is based on clean, well structured xhtml code in a non-table based layout and using cascading style sheets (CSS) for all the presentational information. This improves the site’s chances in search engine content rankings and also makes pages quicker to download, much more accessible to all users and easier to update.
