USAID-Manila: Disaster Resilience in the Compact Nations (RESILIENCE) Program
Deadline: 15 April 2019
The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is seeking applications for a cooperative agreement from qualified entities to implement the Disaster Resilience in the Compact Nations (RESILIENCE) program.
RESILIENCE is a five-year USAID activity that aims to improve the local capacity to prepare for, respond to, and reconstruct after natural disasters in the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) and Republic of Marshall Islands (RMI). The activity is designed to expedite the delivery of mitigation, relief and reconstruction assistance to fulfill USAID obligations to respond to U.S. presidentially-declared disasters in FSM and RMI. The activity will increase the capacities of the FSM and RMI governments to cope with natural disasters in ways that are consistent with their responsibilities in U.S. presidentially-declared disasters. This includes disaster planning; immediate pre-disaster emergency mobilization, local evacuation and sheltering; relief operations during the onslaught of these disasters; and immediate post-disaster operations during the first days or weeks after the disaster event. RESILIENCE will work to increasingly shift responsibilities for disaster response and reconstruction to FSM and RMI governments over the life of the activity.
