    RuralInvest Module 3 - Formulation et évaluation ex-ante des projets
    Une méthode participative pour la formulation et le suivi des petits projets d'investissement en milieu rural
    2007
    Also available in:

    Constituant la suite des étapes d’identification des besoins et investissements prioritaires au niveau des communautés et de préparation des avant-projets (Modules 1 et 2), le Module 3 permet d’appuyer le personnel technique local à formuler et analyser des projets pouvant être soumis à une évaluation externe en vue d’un financement. Le logiciel utilise une plateforme compatible avec Windows qui peut être paramétrée aisément pour répondre aux besoins spécifiques des différents util isateurs. Le Module 3 facilite la présentation des données essentielles relatives aux projets et automatise certains calculs tels que le flux de trésorerie, l’estimation des besoins en fonds de roulement, le taux de rentabilité, la création d’emploi et le coût du projet par bénéficiaire. Le Module 3 comprend un manuel technique, le logiciel, y inclus un guide de l’utilisateur, des exercices de formation et un guide à l’intention des formateurs.

    RuralInvest Module 2 - Preparing and using project profiles
    A participatory approach to identifying and preparing small scale rural investments
    2007
    Also available in:

    In recent years, locally designed and managed investment projects have assumed increasing importance as effective tools for sustainable rural development. Supporting local communities to conceive and implement their own projects – whether for income generating activities or for social investments – not only ensures greater ownership and commitment to those projects, but also strengthens the capacity of communities to contribute to and manage their own development. However, the incr easing adoption of this approach by national governments, international financing agencies and rural banks has also highlighted the critical importance of providing adequate support and guidance to national technicians working with communities and other groups in identifying investment needs, defining potential projects, and developing them for external financing. RuralInvest answers this need by offering a series of modules, developed over a number of years and tested extensivel y in the field, which provide such support through a range of materials and training courses, and include technical manuals, custom developed software and instructors’ guides.

    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This module contains the WinDASI software and a note that illustrates how to carry out the installation of WinDASI on your personal computer. WinDASI is a software for Cost-benefit Analysis (CBA) of investment projects that allows the analysis of the financial and economic viability of investments. In particular, it facilitates the systematic storage of data for Cost-Benefit Analysis and allows to calculate: a) flows of physical quantities of outputs, inputs and investment items; b) flows of cur rent, discounted and cumulative costs, benefits, and net benefits; c) flows of incremental (With-Without project) current, discounted and cumulative net benefits; and e) indicators of financial and economic viability such as the Net Present Value (NPV), the Internal Rate of Return (IRR), the Benefit/Cost Ratio, (BCR), the Switching Values (SVs) and Sensitivity tests. Instructions are provided on how to carry out calculations for the different components of an investment project, notably: plans, zones and projects (i.e. at different levels of aggregation). In addition, the software can deal with comparisons of different projects and alternative scenarios (e.g. with–project versus without-project), and normal and phased modes of calculation.
