Is small still beautiful? We think it is. In an increasingly divided and fragile world Practical Action aims to demonstrate and advocate the sustainable use of technology to reduce poverty in developing countries. With our commitment to poverty reduction, environmental conservation and technology choice we believe Practical Action is uniquely placed to contribute to a world free of poverty.
