Deadline: 13-Sep-21

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is seeking concept paper applications for an assistance type of award mechanism from qualified entities to implement the Scaling Sustainability and Resilience of Community Conservancies in Northern Rangelands and Coastal Ecosystems of Kenya program.

USAID/KEA is therefore seeking to promote and support integrated socio-economic investments using the community conservancies model for locally-led development in the greater northern rangelands and coastal ecosystems of Kenya by strategically partnering with locally-led organizations and stakeholders including local communities, public and private sector, civil society, and research institutions working in the conservation and development space.

The overall purpose of Scaling Sustainability and Resilience of Community Conservancies in Northern Rangelands and Coastal Ecosystems of Kenya Activity is to improve the resilience of vulnerable populations and environments by increasing the capability of local communities, institutions and ecosystems to mitigate against recurrent environmental, economic, socio and political risks, shocks and stressors.

The overall goal of the Activity is to improve the resilience of vulnerable populations and environments in northern rangelands and coastal ecosystems of Kenya by increasing the ability of Kenyan communities, systems and institutions to reduce their vulnerabilities to recurrent environmental, economic, socio and political risks, shocks and stressors. The Activity seeks to address the following underlying causes of chronic vulnerabilities:

loss of biodiversity and
natural resources as a result of environmental degradation, impacts of climate change and variability, and pressure from increased human population and practices;
limited human capital due to high poverty levels, food insecurity, a low literacy rate, complex systemic genderbased inequalities, poor access to basic health, education, water, sanitation, and hygiene, and financial services;
inadequate institutional systems and capacities to mitigate against shocks and stresses; and
resource-based conflicts, gender-based violence, and violent extremism.
