Role profile


Our Vision
Our vision is for a world where all people have access to the technologies that enable them to meet their basic needs and reach their potential, in a way that safeguards the planet today, and for future generations.

Our Beliefs
We believe that:

  • Technology is a key enabler of human development; and that technological innovation has the power to propel us into a better world.
  • All people should have access to, and a voice in, shaping the technologies that can improve their lives.
  • A sustainable future for our planet requires a fundamental shift in the way technology is developed and used.

Our Mission
To develop and demonstrate practical, technology based solutions that enable women and men living in or vulnerable to poverty, to lead dignified lives. To partner with people whose lives are transformed by these efforts and with a range of other organisations: ensuring local ownership, and that the solutions work in the longer term without us. To inspire change through the widespread adoption of sustainable technologies that work - socially, economically and environmentally, so that more people living in or vulnerable to poverty benefit from our learning.

Our Ambition
Our ambition is that by 2030 we will have transformed the way technology is used to improve the lives of people living in, or vulnerable to poverty.

With 50 years of expertise, Practical Action has a strong heritage, and track record of bringing communities and experts together to find practical, sustainable solutions to enable people to meet their needs, which work for both people and the planet. Technology features in everything we do.

Technology is…
”The tools, and knowledge that people use for living”.

Working throughout Africa, Asia and Latin America, Practical Action improves the lives of around one million people every year through access to energy, sustainable agriculture, water, sanitation, hygiene and waste management, and disaster risk reduction.

We are a trusted partner of many communities, governments, development agencies and the private sector. We are uniquely placed as a knowledge broker with a breadth of capacities that enable us to capture and share knowledge in relevant ways for our diverse audiences. We are influential at national level where we work, and globally and considered a “go-to” agency by those seeking to improve energy access for people living in poverty.
