Limited Competition - Countering Wildlife Trafficking in Sub-Saharan Africa

Offered by U.S. Department of State

The Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs of the U.S. Department of State announces an open competition for organizations to submit applications to carry out a project to combat wildlife trafficking and illegal logging in Sub-Saharan Africa. Informed by the U.S. National Strategy for Combating Wildlife Trafficking and its associated implementation plan, and in consultation with other offices in the U.S. government, INL has identified four priority objectives for funding in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Project Goals: To reduce the ability of criminal groups to carry out and profit from poaching and trafficking of protected animals and their body parts originating from or transiting Africa.
During this second stage of competition, INL invites those selected applicants from the first phase (funding opportunity number SFOP0007434) to submit full proposals (NOTE: the email inviting applicants to submit proposals is a required document. Applications that do not attach the email invitation letter will be deemed ineligible). The selected applicants should submit proposals that build on the concepts described in their SOIs. Full proposals should fully describe the problem statement and the links to transnational organized crime in the landscape, country, or region. The narrative should clearly demonstrate how the proposed objectives, sub-objectives, and activities directly and cohesively address those threats. Finally, the proposal should provide a detailed explanation of other CWT programs working in the proposed landscape, country, or region, and describe how the proposed project will complement and not duplicate those efforts.
