Description
The introduction of technology into developing communities around the world is closely tied to the everyday jobs of international aid workers, engineers, health professionals, social workers, and members of religious organizations. A majority of people involved with international development have a non-technical background. In addition, engineers have not been trained to consider societal implications of introducing new technologies into developing communities.<P>Appropriate Technology is written for both non-technical and technical students and professionals who are interested in or currently working in international and community development. The book presents a thorough coverage of the engineering design process as well as complete coverage of commonly used technological systems, processes, and devices. Of equal importance is the book's thorough coverage of the societal impact, political influence, and financial implications of introducing new systems and technologies. Appropriate Technology provides interesting and challenging end-of-chapter projects and problems for self study. It teaches the non-engineer the principles and process of design, and encourages readers to create and design appropriate technologies for various situations.
