Practical Action is a UK-based NGO that provides practical information on a variety of topics that are useful for people living in rural and urban environments globally.

For example, the organization’s website houses a wealth of information on various methods for extending the shelf-life of fresh foods. These techniques are especially important now that some markets across Africa are closed or restricted because of COVID-19.

Practical Action’s website includes detailed, how-to resources on:

  • Clay pot coolers
  • Clay refrigerators
  • Ceramic refrigerators
  • Zeer pot clay fridges
  • Evaporative cooling
