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. 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. This BAA seeks to engage with a wide range of actors to develop and provide innovative interventions that further USAID’s commitments to assisting partner countries on their Journey to Self-Reliance through protecting the environment and natural resources and promoting sustainable development and livelihoods in ways that reduce land-based greenhouse gas emissions or increase long-term carbon sequestration at scale. Interventions should offer significant promise for conserving, managing, and/or restoring ecosystems and productive lands in developing countries through one or more levers that address the key threats and drivers that influence GHG emissions and carbon sequestration in the land sector. USAID plans to issue addenda under this BAA that solicit engagement on specific opportunities to address Sustainable Landscapes issues, for example in specific sectors, countries, or geographies.[1] [1] 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.
