The climate crisis is the biggest threat to the whole of humanity. At Practical Action we use ingenious ideas to help people in poverty adapt to the new climate reality
- Building climate resilience that protects lives and livelihoods
- Transforming food production to work for smallholder farmers
- Making cities fit for people and planet
- Using clean energy to unlock potential
We put 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 – made worse by catastrophic climate change and persistent gender inequality.
We do things differently so answers that start small can grow big – bringing people together in bold collaborations, combining knowledge with innovation to change the systems that keep people poor and vulnerable.
We work with communities to develop ingenious solutions for agriculture, water and waste management, climate resilience and clean energy access. Then we share what’s proven to work with others, so many more people can change their world.
We believe in the power of small to change the big picture.
