Astrid Walker Bourne
Policy and Practice Director - Practical Action

I joined Practical Action in October 2012. I lead the UK based Policy & Practice team of 6 senior advisors and the head of global knowledge. The team supports an external facing change agenda in the organization's goal areas of Energy, Agriculture, Urban Services (WASH) and Disaster Risk Reduction and in the two cross-cutting themes of Climate Change and Markets/Private Sector. Our knowledge work reaches a wide range of audiences from tailored local knowledge services in developing countries to peer reviewed academic analysis.
