Tackling the world’s
Most people recognise the climate crisis as an environmental issue threatening our future.
At Practical Action we also see it as a people issue destroying lives now. Not just through disasters caused by extreme weather events. But by fundamental shifts in people’s ability to survive.
We see it every day in our work in Africa, Asia and Latin America, especially among people who rely on the success of their crops for their survival. Rains that used to come no longer do. Crops that used to flourish now fail. Hunger and hardship follow very quickly.
At Practical Action we believe that human ingenuity is a powerful force – capable of overcoming the world’s toughest problems.
Through our work with people in some of the toughest places on earth, we’ve proven that it is possible to adapt and thrive in the new climate reality.
