Financial Analysis of Investment Project using COMFAR Software
overview

Based on the fact that high-quality pre-investment advice leads to better projects, thus contributes to increasing local and foreign investments, UNIDO has equipped public and private stakeholders with tools and methodologies for project appraisal and feasibility analysis – including UNIDO’s Computer Model for Feasibility Analysis and Reporting (COMFAR). COMFAR facilitates short and long term analysis of financial and economic consequences for industrial and non-industrial projects. COMFAR is accompanied by manuals, teaching materials and interlinked software for project identification and preparation. COMFAR also offers specialized modules, for example on Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) and on Environmental Management Accounting.
