Appropriate Technology Asia

Our Philosophy

is that development should be a participatory practice that promotes the dissemination of knowledge and skills, and is sustainable both environmentally and economically.

Community Integration

We aim to help the poorest in these regions to improve their lives by fully involving local communities in the design and implementation of projects that build on local skills and knowledge, and apply appropriate technologies to create sustainable and environmentally conscious development programmes.

Sustainable Solutions

We focus on disadvantaged groups living in some of the most remote and isolated areas on earth the high mountain ranges and altitude plateaus of China, India and Nepal. The severe climates and limited access to resources of our target areas mean that our technologies must be adapted to these 'low-option' environments.
