USAID Sustainable Landscapes Broad Agency Announcement
USAID’s Office of Global Climate Change (GCC) within the Bureau for Economic Growth, Education and Environment (E3), in cooperation with USAID regional bureaus and selected Missions, developed this BAA for Sustainable Landscapes to improve the Agency’s ability to assist partner countries in solving complex challenges that threaten sustainable development.
Through this BAA, USAID is announcing the Agency’s intent to seek opportunities to co-create, co-design, co-invest, and collaborate but USAID is not soliciting expressions of interest with this announcement. These will be solicited through a subsequent addendum or addenda to this BAA
This Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) seeks opportunities to co-create, co-design, co-invest, and collaborate in the research, development, piloting, and scaling of innovative interventions for reducing land-based greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and increasing long-term carbon sequestration at scale. The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) invites organizations, companies, foundations, community-based enterprises and other public and private entities, academic and research institutions, partner country government agencies, and investors to propose novel or creative approaches for achieving these objectives and at the same time promoting inclusive, economic growth, conserve biodiversity and sustainably manage natural resources, advancing democratic values, promoting transparency and the rule of law, and contributing to greater prosperity and well-being. Cross-sectoral and integrated approaches to addressing other development challenges together with reducing GHG emissions are also welcome, as they are often critical to scaling up climate mitigation outcomes.
