Feed the Future: Strengthening Agricultural Innovation Capacities

Now Funding Agencies will be at your Fingertips

Deadline: 11 May 2018

USAID/Bureau for Food Security (BFS) is inviting concept notes for a programme entitled, “Feed the Future Strengthening Agricultural Innovation Capacities.”

Under the STIP APS, USAID/BFS aims to strengthen capacities for agricultural innovation. It is the process whereby individuals or organizations generate and bring existing or new technologies, practices, and/or forms of organization into social and economic use to increase effectiveness, competitiveness, resilience to shocks, and/or environmental sustainability, thereby contributing to sustainable reducing global hunger, malnutrition, and poverty.

The Bureau for Food Security, which leads Feed the Future, leverages the strengths of other U.S. government partners, multilateral institutions, NGOs, the private sector, universities and civil society organizations to support country-driven food security and agricultural strategies and invests in strengthening both public and private institutions that underpin growth in the agricultural sector.
