Country investment plans in agriculture: Lessons from early experience

The learning note "Country investment plans in agriculture: lessons from early experience" has been published by the FAO Investment Centre Division. It focuses on three case studies in Bangladesh, United Republic of Tanzania and Ethiopia and looks at the challenges, successes and lessons learned from preparing and developing country investment plans (CIPs), which were supported by FAO in 2010 and 2011. CIPs are intended to align, mobilize and direct resources to improve food security and agricultural development. 
The study analyses the process in the case study countries and draws conclusions regarding management, collaboration and preparation of the CIPs as well as their quality and content. These findings can inform future CIP preparation processes and design, and guide external support by FAO and other partners.
