"sound principles and appropriate technology" - to reduce the tendency to be pigeon-holed as the appropriate technology wiki
== What is Appropedia? ==
''Appropedia'' is the site for collaborative solutions in [[sustainability]], [[poverty]] reduction and [[international development]] through the use of [[appropriate technology]] and the sharing of wisdom and [[project]] information. It is a [[wikipedia:wiki|wiki]], a type of website which allows anyone to add, remove, or edit content. Registration is encouraged but not required for contributors.
Appropedia has been described as an "[[appropriate technology wiki]]," but it is much broader than that - it is a [[green wiki]], and a wiki for all matters of [[international development]] and [[aid]]. But most importantly, Appropedia is a open site for stakeholders to come together to find, create and improve scalable and adaptable solutions.
