Welcome to my website focused on Appropriate Technology for sustainable development in tropical areas.

Appropriate technology refers to technology which is most appropriate to the environment and culture. It is suitable for use in developing nations or underdeveloped rural areas of industrialized nations, which may lack the financial sources and specialised expertise to operate and maintain high technology. In practice, it is often something that might be described as using the simplest and most benign level of technology that can effectively achieve the intended purpose in a particular location.
