Designed to focus on people rather than machines, intermediate technology is considered to be more harmonious with the environment and with. This book explores the effects of macro-policies and determines which policies have best promoted appropriate technology in developing countries. It explores the political economy of macro-policies, examining which groups in society are likely to benefit from alternative policies and technologies.

The Delft, Netherlands: Delft University Press, (OCoLC) Document Type: Book: All Authors / Contributors: W Riedijk. The term appropriate technology was first used in the mid s as a solution to problems encountered in the developing world.

Interestingly, when combined with societal needs, it may have been the precursor of sustainable development.

Educators need to address the use of appropriate technology in the home and work environment. Finally, the creative uses for which mobile phones have been used have helped make it an appropriate technology for Africa and its people.

Though not originally intended to provide additional services, this is nonetheless an excellent example of how technology can be shaped to the specific needs of a developing economy. ISBN: OCLC Number: Description: pages, 1 unnumbered leaf of plates: illustrations ; 24 cm: Responsibility: W.

References. Environmental Engineering Author: Harvey F. Ludwig. The goal of Appropriate Technology (AT) is to increase the standard of living for the developing world without condescension, complication, or environmental damage.

Typical AT inventions are more labor intensive, require fewer resources, and use low cost or readily available materials wherever possible. Special attention is paid to the social, cultural, and ethical aspects of the communities.

An appropriate technology is a small-scale, sustainable, and decentralized application of technical innovation. Ernst Friedrich Schumaker popularized this ideology with his influential book, Small is riate technologies are particularly suited for developing countries because they are environmentally friendly, energy-efficient, and are people-centered instead of machine.

A developing country's choice of an appropriate technology from among those available for use in a particular industry is critical: alternative technological strategies that involve varying mixes of capital, labor, and social costs could have significantly different impacts not only on the industry but also on the country itself, especially one whose industrial base is restricted.

Similarly, the multinational companies are dependent on these developing countries for cheap labor and land. Their goal is mutual and hence by working together can realize benefits for each other.
