Launch of the Agricultural Investment Data Analyzer (AIDA): Guiding agricultural investments for higher impact
24 February 2021
AIDA is a one-of-a-kind tool, developed by IFAD and IFPRI, designed to help agricultural investments achieve higher impact. AIDA’s 360-degree economy analysis and evaluation tools will help improve the efficiency, effectiveness and scaling up of rural development policies and projects. Analyses based on AIDA’s evaluations will influence the design and prioritization of policies and investments intended to help poor rural people overcome poverty.
In particular, AIDA will support IFAD and its partners in the design and impact assessment of national strategies and rural investment projects. It also enables analysts in participating countries to perform policy simulations and evaluations.
To date, AIDA has been launched in Egypt, Jordan, Tunisia and Yemen. It will be scaled up to include other countries.
