Sustainable Landscapes Co-creation and Partnership Opportunity

By Climatelinks

There is an urgent need to speed and scale up profitable business models that secure sustainable, deforestation-free supply chains. There is also a need to develop innovative strategies to scale landscape restoration and conservation. To support the co-creation of these models and strategies for Sustainable Landscapes, the Global Climate Change Office of USAID’s E3 Bureau (E3/GCC) posted to and a new partnership opportunity.

USAID is seeking collaborative and integrated solutions to the challenges of 1) reducing commodity-driven deforestation, and 2) scaling up landscape restoration. USAID encourages participation from traditional and nontraditional organizations, including from the private sector.

USAID will convene an informational ("Industry Day") session on November 19 from 9-11 am. Register for the Industry Day session here.

Who should attend?

All organizations with interest in the two challenge themes described in USAID’s Sustainable Landscapes Broad Agency Announcement Addendum, including those interested in submitting EOIs or participating in co-creation as resource partners.

A wide range of environmental changes threaten development. Of these challenges, climate change and plastic pollution in particular inspire concern and action from governments, scientists, and advocates alike. USAID’s work on ocean plastic pollution operates at the intersection of these related problems, and highlights opportunities for innovation in waste management.
In November 2020, two back-to-back category 4 hurricanes, Eta and Iota, struck Central America, making landfall on the coast of Nicaragua, near its border with Honduras, and also affecting El Salvador and Guatemala. Altogether, they caused an estimated one billion US dollars in damage. Despite such impacts, the region was better able to prepare for and respond to Eta and Iota using space-based technologies.
