  Appropriate technology - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Appropriate technology is technology that is most appropriate to the environment and culture it is intended to support.
A related term, intermediate technology, refers specifically to tools that cost more or are more sophisticated or complex than those currently in use in a developing nation but still much less costly, or less inaccessible, than those tools that would be used in a developed nation.
Appropriate technologies for delivering water include the hippo water roller, which allows more water to be carried, with less effort; rainwater harvesting (which requires an appropriate method of storage, especially in areas with significant dry seasons); and fog collection, suitable for areas which experience fog even when there is little rain.

 E. F. Schumacher - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
His theories of development have been summed up for many in catch phrases like "intermediate size," and "intermediate technology." He was a trustee of Scott Bader Commonwealth and in 1970 the president of the Soil Association.
To impose Intermediate Size on a national economy Schumacher suggested superimposing on large-area states a cantonal structure of modest size so that vast industrial concentration (with all this entails in imbalance, ineptitude, and diseconomies of scale) becomes not only unnecessary but also impractical and inefficient.
Intermediate Technology would be a byproduct of the cantonal structure.

"It is important for Hollywood Intermediate while helping to expand the use of this new technology, to also introduce the DI process to the next generation of filmmakers," said David Waters, Hollywood Intermediate President.
Digital Intermediate (DI) is the process of digitizing a motion picture and manipulating color and other image characteristics to change the look, and is usually the final creative adjustment to a movie before distribution in theaters.
The digital intermediate process is far more interactive using digital tools to color grade, which allows for much finer control of individual colors and areas of the image, and allows for the adjustment of image structure (grain, sharpness, etc).

Schumacher's famous introduction of the concept of "intermediate" (or "appropriate") technology has had a major impact on current thinking in the development field.
