Practical Action's work in Bangladesh has evolved over time to meet the challenges of poverty, inequality and vulnerability. Deeply committed to helping the poor in Bangladesh, our work on appropriate technology as a means to improve poor peoples livelihoods has been flexible and responsive to local conditions and needs.

About us

Practical Action, through its programmes in Bangladesh, works primarily by:

  • developing, upgrading, demonstrating and putting into practice appropriate technology within communities using participatory approaches.
  • giving skills training and extending capacity building support to NGO/GO staff
  • sharing knowledge and disseminating information and research findings among key stakeholders
  • enabling producers and entrepreneurs information and skills for making access to market opportunities and linkages
  • promoting advocacy and influencing for policy change
