Practical Action’s Technology Justice Policy Briefing Series, published by Practical Action Publishing, presents new evidence and learning from our programmatic and policy work to inform and challenge current development and technology debates. The series explores the challenges and opportunities for achieving Technology Justice in key sectors of our work.

We also publish a Poor People's Energy Policy Briefing Series, focusing on innovative approaches to achieving equitable access to energy; and a Resilience in Practice Briefing Series, which presents evidence for practitioners on supporting communities to move from vulnerability to resilience.
