Deadline: 15 April 2019
The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is seeking applications for a cooperative agreement from qualified entities to implement Supporting Emergency Agriculture Design and Standards (SEADS).
As part of USAID/OFDA’s Agriculture and Food Security strategy, OFDA/PSPM aims to support the development and dissemination of Supporting Emergency Agriculture Design and Standards (SEADS), which will provide guidance for designing and implementing agricultural interventions, promote best practices for these interventions, and encourage improved integration of agriculture programming with interventions carried out in other humanitarian sectors. As with LEGS, this guidance is not intended to replace the information provided in Sphere, but instead to augment it with additional information, assessment tools, and case studies to show global applicability.
