A WORLD THAT WORKS BETTER FOR EVERYONE
Practical Action is an international development organisation putting ingenious ideas to work so people in poverty can change their world.
We help people find solutions to some of the world’s toughest problems. Challenges made worse by catastrophic climate change and persistent gender inequality. We work with communities to develop ingenious, lasting and locally owned solutions for agriculture, water and waste management, climate resilience and clean energy. And we share what works with others, so answers that start small can grow big.
We’re a global change-making group of problem solvers, knowledge mobilisers and expert advisors. We work together to multiply our impact and help shape a world that works better for everyone. The group consists of a UK registered charity with community projects in Africa, Asia and Latin America, an independent development publishing company and a technical consulting service.
We believe in the power of small to change the big picture. And that together we can take practical action to build futures free from poverty

PARTNER’S RESPONSE ON COVID-19
Practical Action Response to COVID-19
In Bangladesh, with many livings in overcrowded settlements in unsanitary conditions, social distancing will be almost impossible in places where access to soap and water for handwashing was already limited. Our teams fear the worst but have already begun to respond.
