Inclusive Markets and Trade (IMT) work will be centered around i) creating an enabling environment for inclusive markets, trade, REQUEST FOR GRANT APPLICATIONS (RFA) and finance (i.e. policy reforms, implementation, trade facilitation, etc.) and ii) supporting a well-functioning private sector that will be capable of driving farmers and agri-business into a cycle of commercial growth and reinvestment. To support the implementation of Inclusive Markets and Trade work through market shaping/trade facilitation interventions, AGRA is seeking potential partners, to manage the necessary sub-awards, to deliver the three long-term Objectives of the IMT program: SO-1: Resilient supply and demand of supported agricultural products and services; SO-2: Inclusive market (output and finance) performance for supported value chains; SO-3: Improved enabling environment for inclusive markets, trade, and finance especially for youth and women agrientrepreneurship. The potential partners will include, but not limited to, the following: • NGOs or private firms providing Business Development Services and other consultancy services. • Capacity building/training institutions that have a strategic focus towards training of Trade Associations and business associations involved in national and intra-regional trade. AGRA therefore invites submissions of grant applications from interested and qualified organizations operating in the agricultural value chains for projects that contribute to the achievement of AGRA’s stated intended objectives and outcomes.
