For Concern Worldwide integrated projects are interventions which address multiple needs, through coordination across a variety of sectors and with the participation of all relevant stakeholders, to achieve common goals.

Over the last several decades there has been a tendency within the international development sector to organize projects in a siloed manner. In the development sector this translates to projects narrowly managed according to pre-defined parameters, which are considered by donors to be easier to administer, and for which project managers are held responsible. However, there is a gradual move away from these silos and a return toward an integrated managerial approach, combining technical specialists who work on common objectives in a coordinated and collaborative manner.
