About this book

Describes the processes involved when technology is introduced into a developing country from a donor or "home" country. The book discusses the techniques and problems of setting up a technological service institute in the "host" country, and in particular the importance of ensuring that the service organization becomes independent and self-suffficient as soon as possible. The roles of other participants involved in the transfer are discussed - NGOs, financial institutions, equipment suppliers, consultants, advisers - as well as the economic and political implications. Detailed case studies from Sri Lanka, Thailand, Bangladesh, India and the Philippines provide insights into the processes of technology transfer.
