Red Sea Endowment Request for Information

Funding Agency:
US Agency for International Development

USAID/Egypt is contemplating programming to support conservation in the South Red Sea, notably by promoting sustainable and community-based forms of tourism development.

The overall goal of the proposed programming would be to protect the unique ecosystem located in the southern Red Sea region (roughly defined as the coastal and littoral areas between Hurghada and Shalateen) through support for conservation initiatives undertaken by public, private, and nonprofit sectors in close coordination with local communities.

USAID/Egypt is seeking feedback on the notional lines of effort and questions outlined below. USAID/Egypt is NOT planning on providing any funding based on the responses received; USAID/Egypt is simply inviting those involved or interested in this concept to provide information no later than March 9, 2022 (17:00 local Cairo time) to the Contracting Officer, Martin Fischer (mfischer@usaid.gov) and the Contracting Specialists: Nehal Elkhatib (nelkhatib@usaid.gov) and Sandra Boulis (sboulis@usaid.gov).
