The drafting of this handbook was initiated in October 2007, in Ghana, by Ines Beernaerts, in the framework of the FAOKNUST project on “Evaluation of non-treatment options for maximizing public health benefits of WHO guidelines governing the use of wastewater in urban vegetable production in Ghana”. The Farmer Field School (FFS) approach was introduced in the FAO-KNUST project and materialized in this handbook to enhance the experimental learning of the (peri-) urban farmers. The best practices described in this handbook were designed and field-tested in a project funded by the CGIAR Challenge Program on Water and Food (CPWF) under the coordination of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) and the International Water Management Institute (IWMI). This initiative was taken to enable the project to go beyond research and ensure the sustainability of the results.
