FAO Investment Centre at a Glance

The Investment Centre leads FAO’s efforts to generate increased and more effective public and private investment in agriculture and rural development. This means helping countries make agriculture and rural development investment strategies a greater part of their national and regional development plans. Success requires building national capacities to plan, implement and enhance the sustainability of agriculture and rural development investments. Supporting efforts to develop and finance quality public/private investment programmes and projects is essential.
