Practical Action's strength is its experience of over 20 years in the socio-economic development of Sri Lanka. This has helped the organisation understand and be sensitive towards the diverse needs of the communities, understand better the country's socio-economic systems, and the roles of different stakeholders in the process of socio-economic development.
The organization focuses on technology as a tool in poverty reduction and development while having a holistic view on development including social and economic development. This has given a unique position to Practical Action among the development actors in the country.
We work with and support a broad spectrum of stakeholders including government policy and decision making bodies, civil society organizations, academic institutions and other research institutes.
