Through projects on the ground, Practical Action improve the lives of over a million people every year.
Its programmes give poor people access to modern energy, and help them to grow the food they need sustainably.
They help people in urban areas get the clean water and sanitation they need, and reduce the risk of disasters for the most vulnerable.
Practical Action want to change as many lives as possible, by sharing its knowledge and experience.
Its Consulting and Publishing services reach development professionals around the world, and its technical information service Practical Answers offers free resources directly to those who need it most.
