    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.

    The ARRSP will help to achieve the long-term objective of the Democratic Republic of Congo’s (DRC) Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (PRSP) within the World Bank’s Country Assistance Strategy (CAS). The project’s objective is to increase agricultural productivity and improve marketing of crops and animal products by smallholder farmers in targeted areas. Project activities will contribute to this objective by providing seed, planting materials and advisory services, improving rice production, ani mal production capacity and marketing infrastructure and supporting the Ministry of Agriculture and the Ministry of Rural Development in the DRC.

    Guidelines for the design of agricultural investment projects
    Technical Paper N. 7 - 1995, updated 2005
    1995
    Also available in:

    This publication presents guidelines originally published in 1985 as FAO Investment Technical Paper No. 1 and revised in 1995 as Technical Paper No. 7. This 2005 web PDF version generally follows the 1995 print edition, but includes several updated sections. These guidelines have been prepared to help in the design of agricultural investment projects in developing countries. The intended users are FAO Investment Centre staff, trainees and consultants, but 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 guidelines address the need for 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. The publication is divided into three main parts: the first covers the principles and processes of project design, the second provides more detail on the analysis and reporting of project proposals and the third consists of a comprehensive outline for a project preparation report. A separate file contains the sample figures and tables published in the 1995 print edition.
