Description:
Pacific island countries have united internationally to contest the negative external impacts of Western technology, such as the disposal of poison gas and toxic waste at Johnston Atoll, the transportation of nuclear materials, nuclear testing at Mururoa, and the overwhelming prospect of global warming and a rising sea-level. They have been conspicuously less active, however, regarding the significant yet more subtle internal effects of technology transfer and dependence. These internal effects encompass the well-identified problems caused by unsustainable fishing, forestry and mining, and also the less well-known effects, namely the widely various costs - and benefits - of the spread and use (through trade and aid) of new technology in the region. The 27 contributors to this book are experienced senior researchers, project managers, policy-makers and administrators who are closely involved in the provision of technology for development in the South Pacific.
Their analyses and observations span the broad range of issues of concern, and focus on: agriculture and forestry; aid and technology; aviation and shipping; banking; communications; development policy and planning; education and training; energy; the environment; fisheries and marine resources; food-processing; gender issues; health; housing; industry; mining; project management; technology choice and transfer; sanitation; and water supply.
