I am new to this site, and welcome the ideas in this post and the terminology "reverse innovation". I have blogged about this idea - but did not have the terminology - http://www.dadamac.net/blog/20091015/pam-we-want-street-lights The blog relates to my experiences in rural Nigeria and back home in the UK. I believe it is harder to introduce new solutions to problems where the old solutions still seem to be working okay (such as in the UK)and therefore there is more opportunity to explore innovative solutions where the old solutions have not yet been implemented (such as rural Africa). I believe there are huge potential benefits to be gained if "developed world" designers and developers see people in rural Africa as collaborators and consultants. I invite anyone who takes this idea seriously to contact me pamela.mclean@dadamac.net to explore how http://www.Dadamac.net can help you to access the local knowledge that you need, through our networks and well developed communication systems - including weekly online UK-Nigeria meetings.
