The Multifunctional Platform

Mfpwha27 The Multifunctional Platform in Mali integrates basic infrastructure elements into a prefabricated, modular package that reduces cost and increases reliability and efficiency while remaining simple and relatively portable. The basic design criteria are that they be: (i) low cost to build and operate; (ii) mature, simple, reliable technology; (iii) all spare parts locally available; (iv) quickly replicated and expanded; and, (v) cost minimization through costs sharing of common components and systems; (vi) simple to operate, maintain and repair by local artisans.
