Product Description

The Appropriate Technology Manifesto is based on the collective work of the International Network on Appropriate Technology (INAT) and dates back to our first international conference on appropriate technology (1st ICAT) held in Zimbabwe in 2004. Since then we have held nine international conferences on appropriate technology across Africa.  INAT has also supported appropriate technology projects in Benin, Kenya, South Africa and the Sudan.  In 2010, INAT presented an Appropriate Technology Declaration at a National conference on Appropriate Technology held in Washington DC.  This AT declaration is a cornerstone of much of the work of INAT and anchors INAT’s approach to technology policy. This declaration can be found on our website – www.appropriatetech.net
