OBJECTIVES: The program will consist of four components: 1. The
first component will be horticulture. The Recipient will identify a compelling regional horticultural problem, for which effective solutions can be explored through technology innovation and diffusion, preferably in partnership with regional private sector and/or academic partners. 2. The second component, with conditions similar to the above, will be aquaculture. The aquaculture interventions should aim to improve the sustainability of production. 3.The third component reflects USAID/RDMA?s overarching vision for the activity, and will require the Recipient to develop and deliver an approach for identifying and implementing interventions addressing important regional agriculture or food security problems, through broad engagement with relevant stakeholders across the region. 4. The fourth component will be dynamic and flexible and will respond to the specific requests of the bilateral USAID FTF missions for support in addressing a problem through transferred technology. This component will be primarily bilateral mission initiated, designed, and funded.
Interested organizations should successfully demonstrate their capability and capacity to implement activities in the Asia region.
