Overflowing of latrine during monsoon flood and heavy rainfall is a common scenario in Bangladesh. To overcome this common problem, an attempt was made to provide technological solutions for safe sanitary latrines based on the concept of ‘raised latrine’ constructed above flood level in flood-prone and high water table areas. The technologies include ‘Earth Stabilized Raised Pit Latrine’, ‘Step Latrine’, ‘Mount Latrine’ and ‘Sand Enveloped Pit Latrine’.
