About me

"The struggle for long-term economic development in Asia will be won or lost in agriculture. Not only do most  Asians live by farming, but it is here more than anywhere else in Asian economies that social advances can be made, independent of much outside assistance." (paraphrased from a statement of Nobel Laureate Gunnar Myrdal in "Asian Drama: An Inquiry into the Poverty of Nations")

Roberto A. Alaban, Jr.

Beside me is a 2-inch hydraulic ramp pump I built and installed at the Victorias City Eco-center.

My foray into appropriate technology was sparked when, as a youth, I first read E.F. Schumacher's "Small is Beautiful."
