PRACTICA is a non-profit technical advisory organisation with the mission to strengthen skills and tools in low and middle-income countries. We develop and promote affordable technologies with a high potential to improve livelihoods. Our priority is to integrate technical innovations into business models to ensure sustainable access to water, irrigation and sanitation.
PRACTICA is based in the Netherlands and in Madagascar. Our role is to implement technical innovations together with partner organisations in over 20 countries. PRACTICA has witnessed the impact made by local enterprises and supports them by exchanging knowledge, networks and practical tools. We invest in applied research and product development to contribute to continued innovation and more adapted solutions in the sector.
We believe that local enterprises can provide the most sustainable, affordable and adapted services to people that are in need of safe water, energy and sanitation. The technologies they use make a key difference in reaching underserved groups: smallholder farmers, inhabitants of slumps or communities in rural areas. Working towards inclusive and sustainable access requires adapted technologies, tools, trainings and support mechanisms. This is why we innovate continuously, together with a wide range of local and international partner organisations.
