Market Highlights: Much of the widespread environmental desecration, poverty, and waste of human life seen around the globe could be prevented by known technologies, many of which are simply not available to those that need it. This lack of access to critical information for sustainable development is directly responsible for an ethically and morally unacceptable level of human suffering and death. A solution to this general problem is the concept of open source appropriate technology, which refers to technologies that provide for sustainable development while being designed in the same fashion as free and open-source software. Open-source appropriate technology is made up of technologies that are easily and economically utilized from readily available resources by local communities to meet their needs and must meet the boundary conditions set by environmental, economic, cultural, and educational resource constraints of the local community.
