Cambodia: Public private partnerships to support farmers

Background:

Feed the Future Partnering for Innovation is supported by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) through the Feed the Future (FTF) initiative. The goal of this funding announcement is to develop public private partnerships to support agricultural growth and development in Cambodia and complement the US Government Global Food Security Strategy by directly engaging with the private sector. Partnering for Innovation and USAID will partner and co-fund new investments with the private sector to address development and business challenges in Cambodia. Through these activities and investments, farmers at all levels of production, including small and medium-sized farmers cultivating up to five hectares of land, will benefit from increased access to high quality seeds and agricultural inputs, mechanization, and other key production services as well as improved business, marketing, and distribution systems. All awards issued under Partnering for Innovation will be performance-based with partners achieving performance milestones over the period of the award.

Funding Opportunity: Overall funding from Partnering for Innovation for this solicitation is up to $800,000 with up to three partnerships anticipated.
