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.
Some of our key partnerships in achieving food security and sustainable, inclusive agriculture for the poorest and most marginalised communities are highlighted here.
UK Food Group +The UKFG is a leading UK network of non-governmental organisations (NGOs) working on global food and agriculture issues. Their vision is a world in which hunger has been banished by food security.Our membership of the UKFG enables us to contribute the ‘Civil Society Mechanism’ of the ‘Committee on World Food Security’ – a legitimate body formed by the UN, with the support of FAO, working on issues such as:- the International Agreement on Responsible Investment in Agriculture and Food Systems (October 2014) often referred to as RAI Principles- the Voluntary guidelines on the responsible governance of tenure of land, fisheries and forests in the context of national food security (May 2012) Read More

Our interest in CELEP stems from our work with pastoralist communities in Sudan and Northern Kenya. We believe it is valuable for linking lessons from the field – from our work and that of others in Eastern Africa – to policy decisions in Brussels. Read More
