Example text

Even apart from non-fulfilment of needs for public services, constraints in the supply of private consumption goods such as foodstuffs could lead to inflationary pressures. It is therefore essential that increased incomes to the poor are matched by a corresponding availability of basic wage goods. It follows that both generation of employment and incomes are necessary but are not a sufficient means of ensuring access to goods and services. Lack of access is due not only to an inadequate supply of available goods but also, and often, due to faulty distribution system.

Technologies for Basic Needs 35 (b) market linkages between parent firm and subcontractors which, unlike the above, supply the same end product to the same customers; and (c) technological linkages which imply flows of technology and skills between the two sectors. Not enough is yet known on the precise form and the extent to which linkages exist between formal and informal sectors, on the manner in which entrepreneurs and workers in the informal sector acquire skills, the extent to which such skills are adequate for innovations in the sector, on ways to encourage the transfer of technology from the formal to the informal sector, and on whether such transfers are necessarily beneficial to the development of the latter.

More appropriate technologies are needed by the developing countries regardless of the type of development strategy adopted. A basic needs objective, defined as improvement of access to goods and services through appropriate institutions, adds additional dimensions to the concept of appropriate technology. Thus, the focus of attention should be as much on technologies for marketing, distribution and transport as on technologies for production. This paper is concerned with an inquiry into what constitues a concept and strategy of basic needs; how a basic needs strategy is different from the conventional strategies of development, what the implications of such a strategy are for production planning, commodity-mix and technology choice and development.
