Rural Investment Project (AZRIP) 
The objectives of the Rural Investment Project (AZRIP) in Azerbaijan are to improve living standards through improved access to infrastructure services for households in rural communities completing micro-projects. The project has contributed to an improvement in the living conditions of households in rural communities by: (a) facilitating participatory development planning, thereby enhancing capacity to address needs; and (b) providing and rehabilitating priority rural infrastructure identified by communities. The project has also established institutional capacity to promote community development within the State Agency on Agricultural Credits (SAAC) under the Ministry of Agriculture. The additional financing will expand the project to new areas and scale up activities under all components of the successfully implementing current project. Scaling-up the operations is justified for the following reasons: i) living conditions in rural areas remain poor due to lack of employment opportunities and infrastructure and access to social services; ii) AZRIP is one of the few vehicles available to address rural needs as determined by the communities themselves; iii) demand from rural communities has been consistently strong; and iv) the project benefits from a high level of Government commitment.**
