In the rural areas where CCCD is implemented, effective agriculture is key for the wellbeing of children and their families in terms of nutrition and income generation. Over the past years, Help a Child has identified the effectiveness of the Integrated Farm Planning approach – ‘Participatory Intergrated Plan’ (PIP) – developed by the Dutch Wageningen University & Research (WUR). This approach contributes to climate smart agriculture and supports poor families to develop their potential, increase their productivity, while adopting to climate change. In the long term, the approach contributes to achieve global food security in terms of smallholder crop, livestock, fish and forest production. On this page, you will find the PIP modules as developed by WUR.
