The preliminary conclusions put forward in this Rural Sector Note may be used as basis for further discussions between the Government and the World Bank to ascertain the mutual interest in any programme or project follow up. Although the problem of funding does not seem to SURINAME: Rural Sector Note iv be a critical constraint at this stage, it may be important to underline in any future context, that eventual World Bank involvement in development financing of the agricultural sector in Suriname could be of paramount importance for the experience and comparative advantage that the Bank has in dealing with grassroots level projects, capacity building, creating an appropriate incentive framework for the private sector and agricultural services.</p>It is based on an exhaustive review of available literature on the subject including documentation from the Surinamese Government, multilateral and bilateral donors and agencies and a field visit in February 2005 to discuss issues and options with Government officials and institutions involved in the agricultural sector.
