How Change Happens: a shared language and approach to planning our influencing work
Practical Action engages in policy and practice influencing to contribute to long-term positive change for poor people. How? Our projects and knowledge work reach vast numbers of poor people directly as well as indirectly and contribute to improving their lives. However, without achieving change to the policies and practices of governments and other development actors, our direct impact would remain comparatively small, given the scale of technology injustices and inequalities that prevent poor communities to build on their skills and knowledge to achieve a sustainable world free of poverty and injustice, in which technology is used for the benefit of all.
