Practical Action works with a range of organisations worldwide, because we know that we can only bring about real change if we share our learning and collaborate. We share information at all levels, from people at the very grassroots of society to government institutions.
Working collaboratively with other NGOs, private sector organisations and government bodies, we leverage the experiences gained from our programme work to inform national, regional and global policy.
Here are some of our key partnerships in achieving Total Energy Access for the poorest and most marginalised communities:
