Agroindustrial Project Analysis
James E. Austin
Price: $ 30
Published for the World Bank by the Johns Hopkins University Press.
Provides a field-tested analytical framework for systemically designing effective agroindustrial projects.
The agroindustry has become a vital economic sector in developing countries. It not only supplies food, fiber, and exports, but also provides jobs, spurs infrastructure improvements, and advances farming and manufacturing.
Agroindustrial Project Analysis has been a leading reference in this industry for more than a decade. This second edition provides a field-tested analytical framework for designing effective agroindustrial projects. The framework includes the latest technical and managerial advances and presents a detailed conceptual approach that is used throughout the book.
Expanded chapters examine three main agroindustrial activities: procuring raw materials, processing, and marketing. The author uses field examples and current analyses to show what factors can make a project succeed or fail. A new glossary of biotechnology terms has been added, along with updated information on the costs and operating features common to food-processing technologies.
This book has been written for private agribusiness managers, officials in the public sector, and analysts in development agencies. Because both agriculture and industry are examined, investors familiar with one of these areas will gain a more comprehensive understanding of the agroindustrial sector.
