About this book

Foreign aid to developing countries often favours inappropriate technologies, in spite of promising alternative approaches to development in recent years. This collection of essays reviews major policies promoting appropriate technology and identifies positive programmes of action which could be instituted at a national level. Such changes are designed to be an attempt to remove the hostility towards appropriate technology prevalent in many countries and the bias in favour of large-scale capital-intensive industry.


Part 1 Policy approaches: macro-policies for appropriate technology - a synthesis of findings, Frances Stewart and Gustav Ranis; rural linkages and choice of technlogy, Gustav Ranis; the effect of policy and policy reforms on non-agricultural enterprises and employment in developing countries - a review of past experiences, Steve Haggblade et al. Part 2 Policies and places: macro-policies and technology choice in the Philippines, Romeo M.Bautista; appropriate technology and rural industrial development in Bangladesh - the macro-context, Q.K.Ahmad; macro-policies for appropriate technology in Zimbabwean industry, Daniel B.Ndlela;impact of economic policies on technological choice and development in Tanzanian industry, S.M.Wangwe and M.S.D.Bagachwa; macroeconomic policy, technological change and rural development - the Costa Rica case, Eduardo Doryan-Garron; the FUNDA/Momostenango project - a strategy for development promoted by the private sector (the Guatemala case), Roberto Gutierrez.
