COVID-19 is accelerating the use of digital technology and tools around the world. This trend also provides an opportunity to make complex investment analysis tools more user-friendly and ultimately to promote more evidence-based decision-making among governments. The Agricultural Investment Data Analyzer (AIDA) is the first online tool that uses an economy-wide model to assess the impact of agricultural investments on economic growth, job creation, and household welfare.

AIDA is innovative and easy to use — government officials, analysts, researchers, and investors design a package of investments and AIDA reports how the choices affect a country’s economy and population. As such, AIDA will help governments, donors, and other partners to take agricultural investment decisions and to strengthen policy dialogues. This high-level event will launch AIDA for a set of four countries: Egypt, Jordan, Tunisia, and Yemen. The event will take place as part of the inauguration of the new IFAD Innovation Talks, a platform aiming to advance innovation through mutual learning and partnerships.
