FUNDING: USAID-Assets and Market Access Collaborative Research Support Program
USAID has opportunities under the Assets and Market Access Collaborative Research Support Program to provide support in mobilizing the capacities of U.S. universities and public and private partners of universities for 1) global research on problems affecting food, agriculture, forestry, and fisheries; and 2) improved human capacity and institutional resource development for the global application of agriculture and related environmental sciences. These activities are intended to benefit both developing countries and the U.S. CRSP activities are long-term in nature and emphasize equally: (1) the development of capacity of the developing country participants to ultimately meet their own knowledge requirements; (2) the creation of new technologies and solutions to existing constraints under the specific topic of the CRSP; and (3) economic, health and social impacts. Research activities are conducted in collaboration with host-country researchers and institutions, and are structured so as to have a returning benefit to the U.S. institutions or U.S. agriculture more broadly.
