This Request for Applications (RFA) focuses on Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Nepal, Niger and Rwanda. The research for development priorities for all target countries were developed based on Phase I (2015-2020) research findings and stakeholder consultations between September 2020 and March 2021.
All subaward projects funded in response to this RFA should be designed to directly or indirectly improve the nutritional status and health of vulnerable households and livestock producers, especially pregnant and lactating women and children, with climate-smart approaches or technologies.
Proposals must be from institutions not individuals. A key requirement of all proposals is collaboration between a research agency or university in the target country and a research organization or university in the US or a Western country and a private sector or government scaling partner.
