Description:

In many countries, investments in agricultural water management are seen as a key element of rural development and poverty reduction strategies, but they are often costly. Planning such investments requires a good overview of their benefits and costs and of their sustainability. Guidance is further needed in answering the following three questions: i) where to invest?, ii) who will benefit?, iii) what typology of investment is most appropriate? This report describes a methodology to conduct rapid country-level appraisals of the potential for agricultural management investments in support of rural livelihoods.
