Through Grand Challenges for Development (GCD), the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and its partners are sourcing, selecting, and accelerating science, technology, and business model innovations that have the potential to achieve large-scale development impact. Securing Water for Food: A Grand Challenge for Development (SWFF) is part of a portfolio of 6 GCDs, each tackling a critical and complex development challenge. SWFF’s objective is to enable the production of more food with less water and/or make more water available for food production, processing, and distribution in developing and emerging countries. It is jointly funded by USAID, the Government of Sweden, and the Foreign Ministry of the Kingdom of the Netherlands (collectively, the “Founding Partners”). This is the third Call for Proposals (RFA) under Securing Water for Food.
