On average over the past five years, projects prepared with Investment Centre assistance have represented about one-third of total investment commitments to agriculture from multilateral financing institutions. Since 1964, when the first joint programme with the World Bank began, the Investment Centre has helped prepare over one thousand investment projects, generating US$54 billion in investments for agricultural and rural development - US$29 billion of that in external financing. In 1995 alone, investments committed to projects prepared with the Centre's assistance totalled some US$3.3 billion, of which almost US$2 billion was in external loans and credits approved by the boards of the funding partners.

The institutional and regional distribution of Investment Centre-assisted projects approved for financing is illustrated by the charts below. The World Bank/IDA and the International Fund for Agricultural Development are the funding sources for about three-fourths of approved projects. Regionally, a large share of the Investment Centre's work is directed to Sub-Saharan Africa where development of the agricultural sector is a top priority. But the Centre is also very active in other regions of the developing world - in the Near East, North Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean and in the newly emerging market economies of Eastern and Central Europe and the former Soviet Union.
