APPROPRIATE TECHNOLOGIES FOR DEVELOPMENT
Peace Corps
 INFORMATION COLLECTION & EXCHANGEREPRINT R-34September 1981INFORMATION COLLECTION & EXCHANGEPeace Corps' Information Collection & Exchange (ICE) was established so that the strategies and technologiesdeveloped by Peace Corps Volunteers, their co-workers, and their counterparts could be made available to thewide range of development organization and individual workers who might find them useful. Training guides,curricula, lesson plans, project reports, manuals and other Peace Corps-generated materials developed in the fieldare collected and reviewed. Some are reprinted "as is"; others provide a source of field based information for theproduction of manuals or for research in particular program areas. Materials that you submit to the InformationCollection & Exchange thus become part of the Peace Corps' larger contribution to development.Information about ICE publications and services is available through:The Peace Corps Internet Web Site address:http://www.peacecorps.govPlease note the new Peace Corps Mailing Address from July 1998 on is:ICE/ Peace Corps1111 20th Street N.W.Washington, DC 20526USA
 
 
Add your to the ICE Resource Center. Send materials that you have prepared so that we can share them withothers working in the development field. Your technical insights serve as the basis for the generation of ICEmanuals, reprints and resource packets, and also ensure that ICE is providing the most updated, innovativeproblem-solving techniques and information available to you and your fellow development workers.
