The use of low-cost, small-scale technologies in developing countries was first promoted in the 1960s by E. F. Schumacher in his book Small is beautiful: A Study of Economics as if People Mattered in 1973. It became one of the most influential books of the last fifty years. As we face issues of sustainability and globalization, Schumacher’s message becomes even more relevant today than it was thirty years ago.

The booklet and accompanying video, Small is Working: Technology for Poverty Reduction, bring together research and case studies to demonstrate and promote the contribution of small-scale technology to poverty reduction, especially in Least Developed Countries.

This video is also available in PAL format Small is Working
