Maybe you remember the case reports on FCR/MCR in Nicaragua, Malawi and Nepal. Two new case reports, one about flat tiles in Kiribati the other one about MCR tiles in India are available in English from SKAT (see also book review).
The following main article examines some business and marketing aspects of the Fibre Concrete Tiles' technology. Jill Wells evaluated the collected field data from Nepal, Kenya, Peru, Nicaragua, Dominican Republic, Honduras and Ghana and comes to conclusions which also might be interesting for other products in the buiIding material sector because of similar or opposite effects observed.
