Mozambique Resilient Coastal Communities BAA

Funding Agency:
US Agency for International Development

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Mission in Mozambique, USAID/Mozambique, is issuing this Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) to invite participants to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI), co-create, co-design, co-invest, and collaborate to pilot new and innovative approaches that provide actionable solutions to the most pressing obstacles and challenges to improve the resilience of coastal communities and ecosystems, particularly engaging young people to increase their productive participation in sustainably managing natural resources while building sustainable food and fisheries systems, and building climate resilient, diversified, and economically viable livelihoods.

The intent of the BAA is to create high-quality, effective partnerships to pilot new and innovative ways to improve the resilience of coastal communities living in rich land and marine ecosystems that are vulnerable to climatic shocks and environmental degradation. Working with the public and private sector, civil society, and religious stakeholders, this activity will develop and pilot projects that will create a significant number of jobs and sustainable economic opportunities for youth and women, while having positive impacts on the long-term health and productivity of critical ecosystems, particularly the extraordinarily diverse marine ecosystems that are vital to food security.

Expressions of Interest Due: August 30, 2021
