Tourism for Biodiversity and Economic Growth: The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Uganda is seeking applications to fund one or more organizations through a Cooperative Agreement for a four-year USAID/Uganda economic growth program in Uganda. Subject to the availability of funds, USAID intends to provide approximately $10 million in total USAID funding to be allocated over the four-year period. USAID reserves the right to fund any or none of the applications submitted and expects one award as a result of this solicitation; however, more than one award may result.The activity aims to use eco-tourism to reduce threats to biodiversity. Biodiversity conservation is the primary goal of USAID/Uganda's environment program activities. The program will help develop Uganda's nature-based tourism industry to deliver an improved experience for visitors and improved stewardship of the natural resources necessary to sustain Uganda's economic development. Tourism revenues resulting from the enjoyment of biological diversity, often located in the world's less-developed regions, are a significant source of income and employment for local communities. It is important to involve frontline communities and ensure that they learn to manage and protect natural resources, and share in the potential economic benefits of Uganda's natural resources.
