Practical Action


Technology is a key to ending poverty. Technology doesn’t mean just physical infrastructure, machinery and equipment – it’s also the knowledge, skills and capacity to organise and use these effectively.

Practical Action currently has 104 projects in developing countries around the world.

From 2017 - 2020 we will continue to focus on improved access to: energy, sustainable agriculture, urban water, sanitation and waste services and disaster risk reduction.


In addition to our physical projects on the ground, our consultancy, publishing, educational and technical information services extend the reach of our practical approach to tackling poverty, scaling up our approach to reach millions more poor people worldwide.
