Food Security, Nutrition and Resilience Activity -- Liberia
The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is seeking applications for a Cooperative Agreement from qualified entities to implement the USAID Food Security, Nutrition, and Resilience Activity. Eligibility to apply for this award is not restricted.
The goal of the Food Security, Nutrition and Resilience (FSNR) activity is to increase agricultureled economic growth, through improved productivity to enhance food security and nutrition. The FSNR activity promotes a shift from a historic focus on rice and cassava towards a diverse mix of nutritious and high-value crops. The FSNR activity will promote food security and nutrition by increasing the production, availability, utilization, and demand of diverse, nutritious, and highvalue crops. The sustainable intensification of diverse high-value crops will increase farmers’ incomes, strengthen household and community resilience, and promote broad economic growth. This activity will also contribute to the cross-cutting priorities of inclusive development, gender equality, youth engagement, and sustainable climate-smart agriculture.
The goal of the Food Security, Nutrition and Resilience (FSNR) activity is to increase rural economic development and food security in Liberia. This goal will be achieved by: 1) strengthening agricultural practices and on-farm processing capacity of targeted beneficiary groups; 2) diversifying livelihoods and increasing incomes, savings, access to financial services, land and agricultural equipment; and 3) improving market access and year-round availability, accessibility and the utilization of nutritious food by households in targeted communities.
