Appropriate technology

Appropriate technology is local industries as an alternative to expensive and inappropriate imported technologies. Appropriate technology is an ideological movement (and its manifestations) originally articulated as “intermediate technology” by the economist Dr Ernst Friedrich “Fritz” Schumacher in his influential work, Small is Beautiful. Though the nuances of vary between fields and applications, it is generally recognized as encompassing technological choice and application that are small-scale, decentralized, labour-intensive, energy-efficient, environmentally sound, and locally controlled. Both Schumacher and many modern-day proponents of appropriate technology also emphasize the technology as people-centred. See also Appropriate design Eco fashion dictionary.
