Appropriate Rural Technologies

by Dr Dinesh Bhardwaj, pp 87, January 1991, Delhi, India

BP Editorial Review

This new publication by CORT is a collection of 40 descriptions of technologies or devices in the following fields of AT: energy conservation & renewable resources, safe drinking water, sanitation, food preservation devices, low-cost and improved housing, low-cost income generating activities, improved agricultural practices & post harvest techniques; of which five are for cooking. The booklet is well produced and indexed with clear, easy to read printing, plain English and good illustrations. It is not a book for specialists but shows the wide range of appropriate technologies now being developed and promoted in India by CORT. It would be interesting to see a comparison with a list of developing country projects being promoted by the World Bank/UN system in India. Is the balance of investment, research, social and physical infrastructure etc. correct? Copies of this report can be obtained from CORT at a cost of US$30, or Rs. 100/.

Bibliography of Selected Energy Publications

by D Walubengo, Kengo, P O Box 48197, Nairobi, KENYA, pp 70

This little publication highlights some selected documents that have an impact on the direction of renewable energy technologies in the east and southern African region. It deals mainly with household energy and therefore necessarily concentrates on charcoal and wood. It is hoped that it will be useful to those project planners and implementors who wish to refer to the experiences of other projects, but do not have the time or resources to go through all the literature. The publication is available from the above address.
