No 309368, FAO Agricultural Development Economics Technical Study from Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, Agricultural Development Economics Division (ESA)

Abstract: In the face of the economic downturn that Nicaragua experienced in 2018 and the need for a recovery, the study provides a comparative analysis of how investments in productive infrastructure in different agri-food sectors would impact on growth and poverty. The analysis is based on scenarios generated through an economy-wide model representing the Nicaraguan economy and its sectors. The model includes financing constraints and the study explores different financing options for the new investments.
