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.
