APPROPRIATE TECHNOLOGIES FOR DEVELOPMENT
Peace Corps
INFORMATION COLLECTION & EXCHANGE
REPRINT R-34
September 1981
INFORMATION COLLECTION & EXCHANGE
Peace Corps' Information Collection & Exchange (ICE) was established so that the strategies and technologies
developed by Peace Corps Volunteers, their co-workers, and their counterparts could be made available to the
wide 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 field
are collected and reviewed. Some are reprinted "as is"; others provide a source of field based information for the
production of manuals or for research in particular program areas. Materials that you submit to the Information
Collection & 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.gov
Please note the new Peace Corps Mailing Address from July 1998 on is:
ICE/ Peace Corps
1111 20th Street N.W.
Washington, DC 20526
USA
Add your to the ICE Resource Center. Send materials that you have prepared so that we can share them with
others working in the development field. Your technical insights serve as the basis for the generation of ICE
manuals, reprints and resource packets, and also ensure that ICE is providing the most updated, innovative
problem-solving techniques and information available to you and your fellow development workers.
