Call for Applications: USAID Food Loss and Waste (FLW) Partnerships Facility


Food Loss and Waste Partnerships Facility

 

The Feed the Future Market Systems and Partnerships Activity (MSP) is pleased to invite for-profit businesses in Bangladesh, Kenya, Nepal, Niger, Nigeria, and Tanzania to submit an application for co-investment through its Food Loss and Waste (FLW) Partnerships Facility.

Application Procedure

Applications will be received and reviewed in two groups, but due to limited funding, MSP will give preference to applications that are submitted by the Group 1 deadline. MSP will consider applications from Group 2 based on the remaining funds available, if any, after Group 1 applications are considered. Applicants are highly encouraged to apply in time to be considered in Group 1.

Purpose

Through the FLW Partnership Facility, MSP seeks to channel business resources, expertise, technology, and influence to contribute to one or more of the following objectives:

  • Pilot innovative solutions to reduce food loss and waste with an emphasis on nutrient dense products throughout the supply chain in target countries.
  • Reduce methane and other greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions through reduction in food loss and waste via improved practices in storage and distribution, and processing.
  • Create circular economy systems of regeneration within focus countries’ food systems so that waste does not exist but is instead used as feedstock for another cycle.
  • Strengthen the focus countries’ agricultural competitiveness through enhanced services, private sector engagement, and investment, especially within nutrient rich value chains.
  • Improve the focus countries’ resilience and capacity to mitigate and respond to food system shocks.
