The purpose of this book is to raise awareness of other people's innovation. Using case studies of locally developed technologies, the authors examine who the innovators are, how they work, what motivates them and considers how this resource could be better used in global and regional terms.
The process of development assistance has to tackle the problems of ignorance, backwardness, helplessness and resistance to change - not amongst the rural poor but amongst development agencies themselves.;The ignorance of development agencies is ignorance of unfamiliar technological approaches and ignorance of the richness of traditional resources of knowledge. This richness is now being recognized widely for example in the area of ethnobotany, where indigenous knowledge of genetic stocks of plants and their practical applications far outstrips that of the professional biologist and agriculturalist. The Tinker, Tiller, Technical Change case studies aims to demonstrate that equivalent levels of knowledge exist in other areas of indigenous technology. Case studies are drawn from countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
