Written by Dean Spears on March 20th, 2014

In the coming days we will introduce a new blogger and member of the rice extended family: Nicholas Lawson of the Aix-Marseille School of Economics. Today, you should read his new post on the CLTS blog at IDS: “What’s the use? A tale of two latrines,” online here: http://www.communityledtotalsanitation.org/blog/whats-use-tale-two-latrines

His story, once again, highlights the challenges of low demand for latrine use in rural Hindi heartland north India.
