The term technology transfer, when used in regards to sustainability and appropriate technology, is often considered to mean a transfer from the northern hemisphere to the southern hemisphere. But developed nations can learn valuable lessons from technologies developed in the majority world which may use less resources and have a lower impact on the environment. These are important factors for a part of the world that has a greater per capita effect on the global environment.

Examples[edit | edit source]

Appropedia and South to North knowledge transfer[edit | edit source]

Appropedia enables this transfer, along with all directions of knowledge transfer. For example GEM mosquito control from India (which uses no pesticides) and a home biogas system from the Philippines. This includes both technology transfer and more general knowledge transfer.
