The project will address the problems of agricultural development in Rajasthan through a broad approach linking policy reforms and public investments. The project's objectives are to: accelerate the growth of agriculture through improved technical, financial and economic use of resources; enhance sustainability of the productive resource base; and improve equity within the sector. Policy reforms will include full cost recovery for publicly provided goods and services, reduced inputs subsidies, improved efficiency and sustainability of water use, institutional reforms of rural cooperatives, alleviating constraints to private investment in agroindustry, and strengthening of the Government's environmental oversight for agriculture. Investment components will include crop husbandry, horticulture, animal husbandry, water resources, agricultural research and training, rural roads, project coordination, and environmental strengthening.
