RuralInvest is a “toolkit” to help prepare and evaluate small- and medium-size agricultural and rural investment projects. RuralInvest addresses questions such as: Which investments will yield the best results? Is the investment sustainable? Does the project reflect the priorities of local communities? The RuralInvest toolkit comprises a tried-and-tested methodology, user manuals, online and in-country training and the RuralInvest computer software programme.
