Small Technology--Big Impact. Practical Options for Development
Academy for Educational Development
Technology has dramatically changed the world--now almost anyone can "move" at Internet-speed; people who were marginalized are able to find information on acquiring micro-loans to start businesses, and villages previously unconnected to the telecommunications grid now have affordable cell phone access. As technology becomes easier to use, more affordable and widespread, new sustainable development solutions are a reality (2008 estimated costs are provided). This paper presents a few examples of the practical application of small technology that have a big impact around the developing world. (Contains 8 footnotes.)
