Intermediate Technology Development Group (ITDG)

IT Transport can trace its history back to 1966, when the Intermediate Technology Development Group (ITDG) was founded by Economist E.F. Schumacher, based on the principle of bottom-up solutions to practical problems faced by developing countries. Most famous for his seminal book, Small Is Beautiful: A Study of Economics as if People Mattered, part of Schumacher’s philosophy was based on the belief that there should be a move away from top-down policy-led interventions to towards an emphasis on ‘intermediate technologies’ based on the needs and skills possessed by the people of developing countries, and on the facilitation of self-help, rather than aid.
