Practical Action Consulting (PAC) is the dynamic consulting arm of the international NGO, Practical Action. Practical Action combats poverty through the use of appropriate technology that is sensitive to people’s needs and to environmental circumstances. It works in specific areas of the less developed world. PAC takes the lessons learned from the work of Practical Action and reacts to identified needs across a much broader geographic region. PAC has a strong international reputation, which is reflected in its broad client base including the World Bank, DfID, European Union, Asian Development Bank, key bilateral agencies, NGOs and the private sector. It provides high-quality independent and professional advice to governments, NGOs, aid agencies and the private sector, and has done so for over 40 years. PAC operates regional offices in the UK, Eastern Africa (Nairobi), Southern Africa (Harare), West Africa (Dakar), Asia (Delhi, Dhaka and Kathmandu), and Latin America (Lima) staffed with experienced development experts. Its offices have enabled the development of extensive local networks with a range of development practitioners.
