The Appropedia Vision is that all members of the international development community have the ability to find and connect with each other, and to collaborate in sharing the latest information, with multiple views on best practices, for sustainable development, poverty reduction and capacity building. They will have speedy access to each other and to this knowledge-base worldwide and in every desired language.

Specifically, this Vision includes:

  • Copyleft availability and usage rights for all sustainable development knowledge in developing nations
  • What are the best technologies for solving these challenges, by region and by culture
  • What labour / capital trade-off options exist for various solutions
  • In detail, how are these technologies deployed and what are the common pitfalls to avoid
  • What are the best techniques for engaging and partnering culturally and regionally
  • What are the best site assessment techniques for each project
  • Where can supplies and services best be secured, by region?
  • What are the best shipping / delivery options regionally?
  • What experts are open to being contacted with questions?

And more!
