RFI: Natural Infrastructure for Water Security (NIWS) II -- Peru

Funding Agency:
US Agency for International Development

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID), Environment and Sustainable Growth (ESG) Office in Peru is currently evaluating achievements made under the Natural Infrastructure for Water Security (NIWS) activity and exploring the best and most effective approaches, interventions that can inform a possible extension of the same. The NIWS activity is a 5-year Cooperative Agreement signed in 2017 and implemented by Forest Trends with co-funding from USAID and the Government of Canada.

Through this RFI, USAID/Peru is seeking general and/or specific public input (comments, critiques, suggestions etc.) on the scope and direction of overall interventions to cement gains made to date, but most importantly, to make sustainability the focus of current and future interventions.

USAID/Peru is interested in gathering information broadly from local, regional, and internationally based individuals and organizations. Given USAID’s increased ambitions to work through local partners to implement shared development priorities, we are especially interested in hearing from locally based entities1 with interest and experience working to advance climate adaptation, water security, disaster risk management, and nature-based solutions in Peru. As such, the Peruvian private sector, governmental, non-governmental, academia and community-based organizations are particularly encouraged to respond to this RFI.

The USAID/Canada Natural Infrastructure for Water Security (NIWS) activity was designed to support investments in gender-sensitive natural infrastructure (NI) in Peru, as a strategy to regulate water supply and increase resilience to climate change. NIWS–in collaboration with the Government of Peru (GOP), civil society, and the private sector–works to secure water supply and water quality for urban and rural populations, and improve resilience of key productive and urban sectors vulnerable to the impacts of climate change on water resources as well as water-related extreme events such as droughts, floods, and landslides.
