Appropriate Infrastructure Development Group

Description: 

Helps individuals and communities get affordable and environmentally sound access to electricity, sanitation and clean water. Through a combination of business incubation, education, and outreach, we help people get technology that will better their health and improve their lives.

If you are a typical farmer in a developing country and want a biodigester, hydraulic water pump or other low-cost environmentally friendly technology, there is generally no easy way for you to get one locally. You either have to make one yourself or hope that an infrastructure development NGO comes your way. This is because there are few providers of appropriate technologies in developing countries, and fewer still that serve the rural poor. The AIDG intends to change that and we believe that business incubation is the key.
