      The sanitation ladder means improvements in the technologies used and the level of services received in a rural context. Sanitation may be as cheap and simple as a pit latrine or as expensive and complex as a flush toilet with septic tank or sewerage. The higher up the ‘ladder', the greater the benefits for people and the environment. A user may skip one or more steps to move up the ladder.
