Development of a theoretical and a practical model for assessing the socio-economic feasibility of small-growing businesses
The objective of the research is to provide international development agencies and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) with decision making and evaluation tools that are practical and, at the same time, are based on sound academic foundations. These tools are specific to a sector, such as nutrition, and a country, such as Guatemala. The resulting documents will assist analysts in the design of international development projects as well as in their assessment, monitoring, and evaluation. The immediate benefit of such practical guidelines would be their utilization by the partner organization in the analysis of ongoing projects.
