Technology and development aid : the case of Ganga action plan

Technical aid programmes constitute an important part of bilateral and multilateral international development programmes and are an important conduit for the import of technology. These programmes have as one of their objectives the transfer of technology. Yet they are normally carried out by technology suppliers who work on commercial lines and whose interests are opposed to that of upgrading the technical level in the underdeveloped country. The Ganga Action Plan is financed by "development aid". Foreign aid in the actual execution is confined to two projects, the integrated sanitation project at Kanpur and the low-cost treatment and conveyance system at Mirzapur, both under Dutch development aid. What has been the impact of this technical upgradation?

Abstract

Technical aid programmes constitute an important part of bilateral and multilateral international development programmes and are an important conduit for the import of technology. These programmes have as one of their objectives the transfer of technology. Yet they are normally carried out by technology suppliers who work on commercial lines and whose interests are opposed to that of upgrading the technical level in the underdeveloped country. The Ganga Action Plan is financed by "development aid". Foreign aid in the actual execution is confined to two projects, the integrated sanitation project at Kanpur and the low-cost treatment and conveyance system at Mirzapur, both under Dutch development aid. What has been the impact of this technical upgradation?
