Ejemplos de Tecnología Apropiada en Parras[edit]

1. Ejemplo: Recycling coffee cans at the plant nursery, used as planting containers[edit]

a)charactisticas para el exito de la Technológia Sustentable: uses something already available, reuses valuable material

b)impacto ecologico: reduces waste going to the landfill, reduces the need for flimsy plastic containers to start plants in

c)pertinencia cultural: Uses a easily accessed material, no cost

d)usa de materiales nativos: yes

e)usa de la fuerza laboral local: yes

f)reparable localmente? yes

g)contexto socio-politico: encourages the resourcefullness of the people of Parras


2. Ejemplo: People of all ages using bikes[edit]

a) characticsticas para el exito de la Technologia sustentable: human powered transport- doesn´t use gas and make the pollution that cars make

b) impacto ecologico: clean energy, reduced need for oil and the wars that are in embedded in the need for it.

c)pertinencia cultural: a common way for people of Parras to get where they need to go

d) usa de materiales nativos: no

e) usa de la fuerz laboral local: yes- in the maintainance and repairing of them

f) reparable localmente? yes

g)contexto socio-political: gives people with less money a good way to transport themselves and their family (I´ve seen up to three people on one bike). Keeps people healthy- a good form of exercise.

3. Ejemplo: Adobe houses[edit]

a)charactiscticas para el exito de la Technologia sustentable: uses readily available local materials, appropriate material for the climate

b) impacto ecologico: collection of adobe may disturb ecosystems; when the house is done being used as a house it can melt back into the earth without contaminating it.

c)pertinencia cultural: a readily available material that has been used for centuries, relatively inexpensive, uses local labor force

d) usa de materiales nativos? yes

e) usa de la fuerza laboral localmente? yes

f)reparable localmente? yes

g) contexto socio-political: an aspect culturally important to the area, being replaced slowly by the more convienient cement

4. Ejemplo: Clotheslines[edit]

a)charactiscticas para el exito de la Technologia sustentable: uses readily available energy sources- wind and sunshine- to dry clothes

b) impacto ecologico: no impact on the environment, compared to a dryer that uses massive amounts of energy to dry clothing

c) pertinencia cultural: Uses readily available material- simply hanging up some rope. Easy and accessable to all

d) usa de materiales nativos: lechugia can be used, though I´m not sure people actually do

e) usa de la fuerza laboral localmente? yes

f) reparable localmente? yes

g) contexto socio-political: a depressed economy encourages the people of Parras to be resourceful

5. Ejemplo: The Estanque de la Luz[edit]

a) charactiscticas para el exito de la Technologia sustenatable: multiple uses for the same resource- irrigation for trees and crops, recreation for the people

b) impacto ecologico: water diversion from its natural course impacts the ecosystem that it comes from and gives life to the ecosystem it is delivered to

c) pertinencia cultural: allows for the people of Parras to surrounded by trees and plants that produce food and beauty

d) usa de materiales nativos: yes

e) usa de la fuerza laboral localmente? yes

e) Usa de la fuerza laboral localmente? yes

f) Reparable localmente? yes
