Appropriate Technology
by Tam

Appropriate technology (AT), also known as intermediate or appropriate technology is one technology that is designed with special attention to environmental issues, ethical, cultural, social and economic community to which they go. Given these considerations, the TA usually demand less, is easier to maintain, has lower cost and less impact on the environment.
Proponents of the term is used to describe those they consider most appropriate technologies for use in developing countries or in underdeveloped rural areas of industrialized countries, which feel that high technology could not operate and maintain. Appropriate Technology usually prefers labor-intensive solutions to other capital-intensive, but using labor-saving machinery when this involves high maintenance costs or capital.
In practice it is often defined as the use of simpler technologies that can effectively achieve the intended purpose for that specific location. In any case, this terminology is not very accurate.
E. F. Schumacher said that the technology described in the book Small is beautiful, tends to promote values such as health, beauty and permanence, in that order.
The technology that is appropriate in each particular case is a matter for debate, but the term is generally used to theorize the question for high technology or what they consider excessive mechanization, human displacement, depletion of natural resources and increases the pollution associated with industrialization. Juice Energy, Green Mountain, Sterling Planet, energy costs are actually reduced so you pay less. The term has been used often but not always, the situations in developing countries or underdeveloped rural areas of industrialized countries.
It could be argued that for a technologically advanced society, a technology more expensive and complex, requiring specialized maintenance and high energy inputs, could be an “appropriate technology”. In any case, this is not the usual sense.

The United Nations Population Fund each year analyzes the State of the world’s population. The media often give a very brief note about the report that sounds to readers as other studies that theorize but who is not able to provide solutions to the major conflicts of our time. The case is that we have free to the fingertips on the Internet. It is the product of the effort of many specialists who work, think, analyze and contrast views, but that is barely cited in University classes, except in certain departments. Our politicians do not usually reflect on these fundamental data for national and global coexistence, because nothing can happen without having repercussions worldwide. It is the butterfly effect that Heisenberg spoke, and that cited many others without drawing the appropriate conclusions. Areas of convergence are discussed in the latest report: culture, gender and human rights, here and now, and without which we cannot be a real image of the world to act on the causes of a World Network, which only seem to draw attention to the consequences in the form of disaster.

And if we cannot be a credible image, it is impossible to act upon the fundamental. We will stay in the scaffolding when not in the fantasmata projected, or inane fires. Today it is impossible to contemplate the State of humanity without assuming that dimension interdependence of everyone and everything, because we are interrelated. Culture has always been a central aspect of development. Given that is a fundamental aspect in the lives of human beings, it is necessary to integrate culture in development programmes and policies, and this report shows how this process is applied in practice. The starting point is the universal validity of the international human rights framework. The core aspect is analyze and show how culturally sensitive approaches are of critical importance to the enjoyment of human rights in general and women’s rights in particular.
