Deadline: 30 June 2019
The Kenya Crops and Dairy Market Systems Development (KCDMS) Activity, a USAID-funded project implemented by RTI International is seeking concept papers for implementation of activities designed to strengthen market systems in the following priority value chains: dairy, fodder/feed, and horticulture (mango, passion fruit, avocado, banana, pineapple, and sweet potato).
KCDMS seeks to strengthen market systems, enabling farmers to intensify and diversify into higher-value crops, value addition activities, and non-farm employment and enterprises in the dairy, feed and fodder, and horticulture value chains. KCDMS takes a facilitative approach, working through public and private market actors best positioned to drive positive changes that will reverberate throughout the system.
The purpose of the APS is to solicit proposals from prospective privately-owned firms for implementing activities under the KCDMS project, focused on strengthening market systems in dairy, feeds and fodder, and horticulture. The project aims at catalyzing growth in dairy and horticulture by supporting the permanent actors in the sector to create sustainable solutions to existing constraints through the following approaches:
- Sustainable Agricultural Market Systems
- Agricultural Production and Productivity
- Build Competitive, Inclusive and Resilient Agricultural Market Systems;
- Diversify Agricultural Production and Improve Productivity;
- Improved Policy Environment for Market Systems Development;
- Integrate Youth and Women into Agricultural Market Systems; and
- Increased Collaborative Action and Learning for Market Systems Change
Individual grants awarded as a result of this APS and submission of a final application are intended to be within the range of KES 500,000 to KES 25,000,000 in year 1.
