Submit a concept note to review programs in USAID resilience focus countries

USAID’s Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance is accepting concept notes – preferably from multidisciplinary teams of researchers and development professionals – to undertake a resilience, food and nutrition security Desk Review and Market Study (DRMS); a Political Economy Analysis (PEA) and a secondary data analysis to inform the design strategies and approaches of future multi-year Resilience Food Security Activities (RFSA) in USAID Resilience Focus Countries.  

Every applying team needs to have at least one participant from a Higher Education Institution (HEI). Participation from HEIs in Low- and Middle-Income Countries (LMICs) is strongly encouraged. The CN will be assessed according to the strength and experience of the team as a whole.
