Objective

To do so, USAID SEGAR will strengthen the capacity and access to resources for communities and smallholders to facilitate their integration into green supply chains, improve their environmental stewardship and make more efficient use of their existing agricultural land. At the same time, USAID SEGAR will broaden the range of sustainable, income-generating livelihood options available to them. In addition, USAID SEGAR will also provide institutional support to strengthen and consolidate existing or nascent multi-stakeholder fora (MSF) within USAID SEGAR-supported districts.  

USAID SEGAR will award two grants to Indonesian Non-Government Organizations (NGO) and Community Society Organizations (CSO) to undertake smallholder and community engagement and MSF support.
