Appropriate technology is a movement (and its manifestations) encompassing technological choice and application that is small-scale, affordable by locals, decentralized, labor-intensive, energy-efficient, environmentally sound, and locally autonomous.
It was originally articulated as intermediate technology by the economist Ernst Friedrich "Fritz" Schumacher in his work Small Is Beautiful. emerging technologies for developing countries Download emerging technologies for developing countries or read online books in PDF, EPUB, Tuebl, and Mobi Format.

Writers such as Dwight H. Perkins have argued that China's encouragement of small-scale industries making use of appropriate technology in the rural areas created jobs and enabled China "to avoid some of the worst aspects of the urban-rural polarization that characterizes so many developing countries" (Long,p.

This is a joint post with Walter Park. The spread of knowledge and ideas should help close the gap between rich countries and poor. That’s why technology transfer is one of the seven components of CGD’s Commitment to Development Index (CDI).
You may remember that Denmark came out on top of the CDI overall, but it was edged out by South Korea on the technology component. Ghosh indicates that the majority of appropriate technologies, although developed with cost as a central consideration, are still too expensive for most people in developing countries.
In order for an appropriate technology to be helpful in meeting basic needs, the cost of the device must be such that the people in developing regions can afford by: A developing country (or a low and middle income country (LMIC), less developed country, less economically developed country (LEDC), or underdeveloped country) is a country with a less developed industrial base and a low Human Development Index (HDI) relative to other countries.
However, this definition is not universally agreed upon. There is also no clear agreement on which countries fit.
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.

A byproduct of this movement is the advent of appropriate technology (AT), an approach to address challenges in the developing world through creative and people focused product development.
All students need to learn about appropriate technology, defined here as the use of materials and technology that are culturally, economically, and socially suitable to the area in which they are implemented. The term appropriate technology was first used in the mid s as a solution to problems encountered in the developing world.
Understanding how specific appropriate technologies can improve the quality of life for people in economically depressed areas in the United States and in developing countries throughout the world will give a sense of altruism to students' understanding of the application of technological skills.

Google Scholar Jequier, : Thomas Simon. Multinational companies develop technologies that are highly capital intensive whereas the technologies needed by the developing countries are labor intensive.
Thus this makes the technology contribution as less suitable, also multinational companies charge heavily in the forms of fees, duties and royalties for the usage of their technology. As technology has shown a significant role in the development of the Western World and its economic growth, Third World countries are still suffering to integrate advanced technologies into their system today.
With globalization and cooperation from developed countries advanced technologies can be infused into Third World countries. The field work conducted by EWB-USA has revealed an urgent need for appropriate technologies specific to the developing world.
An "appropriate technology" is usually characterized as small scale, energy efficient, environmentally sound, labor. Developing countries are generally dependent on primary commodities for a significant share of their revenues.
So, if prices rise it may benefit their countries. It will increase the rate of economic growth and if the revenues are used on things such as education, health and infrastructure then it can improve the country's economic development.

Reshoring of tasks and work back to the advanced economies threatens to disrupt labor markets in the developing world.
