A network of Intermediate Technology Transfer Units (ITTUs) has been established within Ghana, serving to foster and develop small-scale informal industry. Since the founding of the first ITTU in 1980 the idea has flourished with such units being set up throughout Ghana. The objective of the Intermediate Technology Transfer Unit is to introduce artisans to new production techniques and the manufacture of new products. It consists of a group of basic engineering workshops located in the heart of an informal industrial area, engaging in such processes as metal machining, welding and blacksmithing. The ITTU is a dynamic operation, handing over activities to its clients as they become competent, and moving to explore new activities. It also functions commercially thus testing the viability of its activites. This handbook provides detailed guidance on the workings of the unit. Whilst its primary purpose is to serve as a training manual for those involved in the operation of ITTUs, it also aims to introduce the ides to a wider audience, perhaps inspiring otehrs to reproduce the practice elsewhere.
