Centre for Integrated Community Development

CICOD logo

Centre for Integrated Community Development (CICOD) was set up in 2002 by community development activists to empower local communities to determine their own development needs through active participation.

Its mission is to empower the poor, vulnerable and marginalized communities to address livelihood insecurity, illiteracy, poor water and sanitation and environmental degradation through capacity building, community organisation and collaboration.

CICOD has four main programme areas: Livelihoods Security, Environment, Natural Resources and Climate Change Management, Education, and Water and Sanitation. The organisation has been implementing programmes in food, income, water supply including irrigation, sanitation and hygiene promotion; and energy such as fuel efficient technologies and use of fast growing regenerating trees for forestry.

Within the CCPM it works with communities in the Chikwawa district.
