USAID Enabling Environment for Climate Resilience Activity (EECRA) -- Bangladesh

Funding Agency:
US Agency for International Development

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is seeking applications for a Cooperative Agreement from qualified International and/or Bangladeshi local entities to implement the USAID Enabling Environment for Climate Resilience Activity (EECRA) program.

This activity will support strengthening a policy environment and governance structure favorable for transformational changes in key systems aiming at net-zero emissions and a climate-resilient Bangladesh. This activity aims to catalyze long-term systemic shifts in Bangladesh's economy, institutions, and governance structures through interventions such as enabling policy development, facilitating technology transfer, bolstering climate research, and catalyzing the scaling of climate actions.

Fully addressing the climate crisis requires long-term, transformative changes that will affect every aspect of society and will be neither easy nor quick. USAID/Bangladesh will take a systems approach to these larger transformations in comprehensive and equitable ways that are locally led. USAID will seek to collaborate and coordinate with other developing partners to 'solidify and scale relevant programs, initiatives, and results.

The prime applicant may submit only one application. Interested applicants from within Duke should contact fundopps@duke.edu as early as possible.
