As the specialist publishing arm of global change-making organisation Practical Action, we partner with the brightest minds to publish the latest development perspectives. We put affordable knowledge into the hands of people who need it most, whatever their location, in a language and format that suits them best. Rooted in hands on community development experience, we innovate and respond to what change-makers need – from practical ‘how to’ manuals to academic texts and journals; online, in print and open access formats. As an independent publisher we are the exclusive publisher and distributor for prominent international partners and we publish for a variety of international organisations and academic research institutions. External partnerships have been invaluable in building our holdings catalogue of 2000+ books and 3000+ journal articles published since 1974. All of our resources are peer reviewed by experts in relevant fields and produced according to professional publishing standards. During 2019 we added to our catalogue of knowledge resources by taking over the management of Health Books International and Practical Action’s knowledge service Practical Answers.
