Practical Action won the Collaboration Award for the "We need to talk about poo" project.

Collaboration Award

The Collaboration Award recognises the importance of effective relationships and collaborations within and across disciplines to tackle difficult issues.

We want to celebrate collaborations which highlight what is working and what is possible when diverse organisations and sectors come together to achieve a shared goal.

The winner

We wanted to hear from organisations that have successfully worked together on a project with a mix of organisations and individuals – for instance, local entrepreneurs, governments, funders, the private sector, consultants, academics or researchers. The winner was announced at the awards ceremony on 18 March 2019.
