Abstract The task of providing for basic human necessities such as food, water, shelter, and employment is growing as the world’s population continues to expand amid climate destabilization. One of the greatest challenges to development and innovation is access to relevant knowledge for quick technological dissemination. However, with the rise and application of advanced information technologies there is a great opportunity for knowledge building, community interaction, innovation, and… 
Appropriate Technology: Revisiting the Movement in Developing Countries for Sustainability
The economic growth of any nation is steered and dependent on innovation in technology. It can be preferably argued that technology has enhanced the quality of life. Technology is linked both with an

TLDR
The findings of the study presented three factors of appropriateness namely designing for socio-environment sustainability, localizing design to cost solutions and exploring the market potential, which highlights the importance of positioning appropriate technology and exploiting its perspective to build it a mainstream discipline in technology management and studies.
Barriers to Appropriate Technology Growth in Sustainable Development
Given the urgency of development problems world-wide, as well as the opportunities of open source appropriate technology (OSAT) to help expedite sustainable development goals, a better understanding
Appropriate Technology for Sustainable Ecosystems: Case Studies of Energy Self‐Reliant Villages and the Future of the Energy Industry
Recent development and sustainable improvement studies have been conducted to investigate the effects of appropriate technology on the growth of developing and developed countries. As one of the most
Technologies and Partnerships
Appropriate technologies are technologies that are socially, culturally, environmentally and economically accepted by the stakeholders. It is necessary, therefore, to develop appropriate technologies
Innovation through collaboration: scaling up solutions for sustainable development
TLDR
This paper explores opportunities to overcome obstacles to higher multiuser collaboration for OSAT deployment using four techniques: collaborative online platforms, crowd-sourcing, the concept of knowledge commons, and enabled educational institutions through service learning and applied research.
Opportunities and Possibilities of Sustainable Development through Research
TLDR
The Brundtland commission report coined what has become the most often-quoted definition of sustainable development: Development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
