About: Appropedia is the site for collaborative solutions in sustainability, poverty reduction and international development through the use of appropriate technology and the sharing of project information. It is a wiki, a type of website which allows anyone to add, remove, or edit content. Registration is encouraged but not required for contributors.  

Appropedia has been described as an “appropriate technology wiki,” but it is much broader than that – it is a green wiki, and a wiki for all matters of international development and aid.
But most importantly, Appropedia is a open site for stakeholders to come together to find, create and improve scalable and adaptable solutions. For more about our motivation, see Appropedia:Mission.

Appropedia began in April of 2006. Six other similar sites have joined Appropedia since its inception:

  • Sustainable Development Wikia,
  • WinWinWiki,
  • Wikigreen.org,
  • Village Earth’s ATwiki,
  • HowToLiveWiki, home of the Hexayurt,
  • sgoals, the site for sustainable business.

These collaborations have brought many content pages, readers and contributors. You can learn more about the history of Appropedia at Appropedia: A_history_of_collaboration.
