case studies will form a major new book in 1990 from IT Publications, called 'Tinker Tiller, Technical Change'
In June 1989 Intermediate Technology brought together specialists from 14 countries in the developing world in London to promote people's technologies'. Their case studies from Africa, Asia, and Latin America show that farmers, artisans, small businessmen, and entrepreneurs are at the forefront of technical innovation in the process of rural development. These case studies will form a major new book in 1990 from IT Publications, called 'Tinker Tiller, Technical Change'. The conclusion to be drawn from the studies is that technical change does not come only from universities and research institutes, but rather from the producers themselves, who are often at the forefront of innovative processes, developing the tools and techniques that they themselves require.
