PRACTICA Foundation, Netherlands
The PRACTICA Foundation aims to facilitate research, development and commercial application of technology in the field of water and energy in developing countries. The choice for water and energy-related technology comes from an assessment that these are often prime movers in rural livelihoods and the conviction that there is still considerable scope to reduce cost and improve the quality of technologies in use.PRACTICA has a general role as a clearing house, advocate and source of practical knowledge on promising new affordable technologies and services in the water and energy sector. For PRACTICA the commercial promotion is as important, if not more important, as the development of technology. Towards this end PRACTICA works with a network of partner organisations that produce, promote and sell improved rural products. The values of PRACTICA are focus on the poor, use of proven solutions and innovations, adoption to the local context and engagement of the private sector.
