Problem

Intellectual methods excluding popular participation in technological development

Nature:
In order for technological developments to be responsive to the needs of local people methods must be developed which enable the conceptual capacity of the grassroots to be used in this innovative process. The grassroots are excluded from the processes of needs analysis, from the intellectual framework in which the technology is being developed and from participating in creating strategies for distribution. They are left with the choice to consume or to not consume.
