The purpose of this fi-compass handbook is to serve as a guidance document for managing authorities preparing an ex-ante assessment with the intention to implement financial instruments under the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD). It focuses on potential investments targeted at agricultural holdings, primary agricultural production activities and the first sale or direct sale of agricultural products. Content in the handbook reviews various agricultural sub-sectors, providing a comprehensive analytical approach towards financial needs in agriculture. As such it is designed to provide methodological advice on how to implement the ex-ante assessment for an agricultural financial instrument, and includes illustrative step-by-step examples.
