And so, for us to appreciate this impact, let focus on one key sector of the economy where appropriate and inappropriate technology is used .In this paper I shall focus on this agricultural sector as the area of research.
In the first place, I shall focus on establishing the working definition of the terminologies we are using namely: appropriate and inappropriate technology. The clear understanding of these terms will help us appreciate the extent of the research in the said sector .In order for us to establish fully how such technology is classified as appropriate or not, I shall argue with the aid of examples drawn from the Zambian Agricultural sector, focusing on the success and failures in the sector.

And so, as a way concluding our discussion, I shall establish the possible ways in which technology can use appropriately in order to better the lives of most Zambians. As we will see, at times it is
