Abstract

The book aims to help the reader gain a good understanding of the relevant historical developments and also the various static and dynamic issues involved. The focus of the volume is on analysing the process of helping effective transfer of technology to developing countries. The three areas emphasised are: first, exploration of the origin and the development of the concept, examining the relevant evaluation criteria and the problems of transferring advanced technologies; second, case studies from Bangladesh, India and Nepal are incorporated to help to analyse the state of technology policy in some of the low-income developing countries. Finally, it examines industry case studies in particular the transfer of technology to Nepal in turbine manufacturing (for micro-hydro plants) and to Bangladesh in fertiliser manufacturing (using natural gas).
