Re: Care farming: an innovative approach for promoting women’s economic empowerment, decent rural employment and social inclusion. What works in developing countries?
FAO ESP, Italy
Thank you for writing to us from Nepal! So great to see also WOCAN's participation in this forum! Please share with us your experience related to the child care facilities you mentioned becasue our plan is exactly this: to discover what is out there, analyse and develop the conceptual and methodological framework that can describe the best care/social farming type experiences in less developed countries. Therefore we are open to any experience which managed to provide alternative/innovative care service in rural areas. There is already a sort of definition for care/social farming for the cases that are common in European countreis but that will not or not fully apply in other parts of the world.
Let us know if you find other examples, we look forward to receiving your news!
All the best,
