  • Synopsis
    Appropriate green technologies are sometimes regarded as a second-rate solution but the series Innovations for a Sustainable World challenges this concept by presenting real-life examples of successful appropriate technological stories from Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America. All of the studies in these two books have been produced as a result of personal experience from somewhere in the world. Subjects covered in the series include success stories from agriculture, agro-processing, enterprise, energy, building and shelter, water and sanitation and recycling. Based on the Hands On series of video films prepared by the Television Trust for the Environment and broadcast on BBC World, these books promote appropriate innovations and environmentally sound solutions which can help reduce consumption. All of the new technologies and scientific breakthroughs described in the books can be applied by individuals and entrepreneurs at a reasonable cost to themselves and to the community. Some of the initiatives can be applied in the home, while others can be used by entrepreneurs to stimulate green business and small-scale enterprise. The books offer a range of suitable solutions for development professionals, NGOs, entrepreneurs and individuals who want to improve peoples livelihoods and the environment. They give practical advice and demonstrate a wide range of how to technologies including income-generating schemes in cities like Delhi and Dhaka, transport initiatives in Kathmandu and Copenhagen, and energy-saving projects in Addis Ababe and Beijing. Hands On - Energy, Infrastructure and Recycling covers innovations in energy and power, buildings, transport and re-use of materials.
