well, unfortunately, the numbers of architects working on developmental issues is not "enough" even in southern countries.and those who are interested to work in the area are discouraged by the low funds such work generates, somtimes not enough even to sustain the architect.
also so often, whats going on in the name of "developmental architecture" is so much crisis management. repairing what is done badly by hordes and hordes of other agencies.
wars and earthquakes, are not normal situations for development.
appropriate architecture requires a society, which is concerned about the same.it requires to be implemented in normal everyday life and needs. and educating the end user is a big concern, if any major changes are to be made in the way our race builds.ironic as it sounds, advertisement seems to be an important way to bring about a change in the now commercialised architectural market.
