Landcare Foundation of the Philippines (LFPI)


What is Landcare

Landcare is a farmer-centred and farmer-led, group-based approach to agricultural extension, aimed at improving rural livelihoods on a sustainable basis.

Landcare in the Philippines
It is an alternative model for extension adaptable for local government units, national government agencies and other key development players. It is a people-centred approach for extension that brings all key stakeholders in the community together to learn and jointly address a broad range of livelihood and natural resource management issues. The issues may be degradation of resources on the farm, low farm productivity, poor marketing systems or even bigger issues that affect the wider community. Landcare holds great promise for the nation as an effective means of addressing these issues.

Our Advocacies

Landcare will continuously support local initiatives for sustainable agriculture and natural resources management in the Philippine uplands and other ecosystems through action-research and extension services mainly in partnership with local peoples’ organization, local government units and other service providers in the environment and agricultural sector.

Specifically, Landcare’s advocacies are focus on livelihood development for small farmers within the context of soil and water conservation, integrated sustainable agriculture, climate change adaptation and mitigation and natural resource management.
