The impact of indigenous and modern technologies in sustainable development

Levy Nyirenda

The indigenous technology refers to the technological knowledge, skills, and resources transmitted or handed down from the past indigenous people to the present ones to meet their needs and wants by means of investigating, designing, developing, and evaluating products While Modern technology is simply an advancement of old technology. These definitions shows that there is no modern technologies without indigenous or traditional technologies, and indigenous are supported by modern to be effective. Advancement of modern technologies goes with the equipment used in the laboratories or industries. The author discovered that what are considered to be modern technologies in some countries are indigenous in other countries, especially in developed countries. We can’t talk about sustainable development without mentioning policies and the implementations of those policies, in our country most policies are good and favorable to help in sustainable development, but the scientific industry is still regarded as nothing important, underfunded and considered to be a waste of resources. Therefore employing both modern and indigenous technologies in developmental projects, will help achieve great results, because both the community and initiators of the project will understand it fully. It is very much impossible to achieve Sustainable development goals (SDG’s) with frontier technologies alone or indigenous technology alone, but combining them will help achieve.
