Rwanda USAID-Kigali -- The Modernizing Agriculture Activity (ModAg)

Funding Agency:
US Agency for International Development

The overall Modernizing Agriculture Activity Objective is to increase incomes and improve nutritional outcomes, by sustainably increasing agricultural productivity, and strengthening domestic consumption and markets for high-value and nutritious agricultural products.

 

The USAID/Rwanda ModAg Activity will seek to address the following overarching problem: Rwanda's agricultural sector is unable to realize its full potential to drive inclusive growth, food security, and nutrition because it lacks strong linkages to profitable markets and sufficient financing, and experiences inadequate use of production-enhancing technologies and inefficient farmer support services, and operates in a constrained enabling environment that disincentivizes private-sector investment and engagement.

Each legal entity is limited to one application submission under this NOFO as the prime Applicant. There is no limitation on being included as a potential sub-awardee across multiple applications. The use of exclusive teaming arrangements is discouraged. Interested applicants from within Duke should contact dukeiln@duke.edu as early as possible.
