What makes ecosan development in the Southern African sub-region particularly interesting is the varied approach which has developed to cater for the huge variation in living conditions seen in the sub-region. In terms of diversity, an extended range of sanitary options is available to accommodate an equally wide range of recipients. Some will be accustomed to flush toilets in the urban areas of big cities, others, perhaps most, will be familiar with the pit toilet in its various forms. Huge numbers of people living in the sub-region may never have used a toilet at all. This real live situation clearly demands a flexibility of approach.
