    Enhancing Peace and Governance through Appropriate Technology: Reimagining Sustainable Community Wellbeing in an Era of Global Climate Change


    War and conflict seem to be endemic in many parts of the world, especially in Africa. This is often related to deep-rooted injustice, unequal development, and lack of good governance. Many people still lack access to clean water, sanitation, energy, reliable food and nutrition, healthcare, education, safe transportation, information and communication, and are also suffering the consequences of climate change. People are engaged in scientific research and development to address these problems, while pertinent indigenous knowledge also exists. In sum, this represents the transfer of knowledge for achieving community wellbeing. The 10th ICAT will focus on the dissemination of diverse experiences among motivated actors from a wide cross-section of society, exploring new frontiers and challenges from across the broad, interdisciplinary, diverse scope of Appropriate Technology, contributing to achieving a more equitable, sustainable, just and peaceful global community.
