    Guidelines for the design of agricultural investment projects 1993
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    The aim of these guidelines is to help in the design of agricultural investment projects in developing countries. The intended users are F AO Investment Centre staff, trainees and consultants. Much of the material may also be useful to staff in governments, financing agencies and consulting firms who are responsible for designing or appraising such projects. The projects referred to are principally those sponsored and supported by governments, but in which farmers, herders, fishermen or forester s participate and carry out the productive activities. The guidelines address the need for such projects to be conceptually coherent, relevant to national needs and capabilities, technically sound, viable in economic and financial terms, attractive to the participants, socially acceptable, and environmentally and fiscally sustainable.

    This paper outlines the role of sociological analysis in the design of agricultural investment projects, particularly those being prepared for funding by multilateral financing institutions. It is intended mainly to assist mission leaders as well as sociologists, anthropologists and socio-economists working for the FAO Investment Centre. Some observations and recommendations will also be relevant to Governments, lending agencies and consulting firms engaged in agricultural investment project for mulation. It covers basic concepts and principles, sociological analysis required for different types of projects, the range of options for its integration in the investment project cycle, and provides a practical guideline for the design and implementation of diagnostic studies of target groups and their farming systems.

    Incorporating climate change considerations into agricultural investment programmes 2013
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This guidance document aims to assist investment project formulation practitioners in incorporating climate change considerations into agricultural investment projects and programmes. The main focus is on project/programme formulation (i.e.identification and design), although some aspects of supervision and evaluation will also be presented. It is intended for national and international staff and consultants, as well as government staff involved in mobilizing investment for agriculture and rural development, mainly through assistance to project or programme identification, formulation and supervision. It is meant to apply to investment projects or programmes in agriculture and rural development (agriculture in the broad sense, including fisheries, livestock and forestry). It can also be used for stand-alone climate change projects or programmes; however, for most stand-alone climate change projects/programmes, there are specific guidelines provided by their funding agencies and other d evelopment partners.
