The Challenge - Affordable Roofing

The housing deficit in the southern hemisphere is a chronic situation, and is on the increase. Over 60% of the dwellings are built within the informal sector. Roofing is the most expensive part of a simple house.

Throughout the past decades EcoSouth experts have been involved in various phases of the development and dissemination of a roofing technology that can contribute to alleviating this chronic situation. Micro Concrete Roofing tiles (MCR) have become an established alternative in local market regions throughout Latin America, as well as some parts of Africa and Asia.
