FTF is the U.S. Government’s (USG) global hunger and food security initiative. Funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), the FTF Innovation Lab for Fish (Fish Innovation Lab or FIL) has the overarching goal of alleviating poverty and improving nutrition through the reliable provision of fish as an animal protein source. To achieve this goal, the FIL will fund country-focused research and capacity building projects implemented through competitive research grants. These grants will form an integrated and multidisciplinary research program that enables the long-term sustainable development of private infrastructure and small farm/fisheries producers in Africa and Asia. Mississippi State University (MSU), the FIL Management Entity (ME), will coordinate and manage this global research for development program.
The Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Legume Systems Research, managed by Michigan State University, invites concept notes for collaborative research and capacity building projects on legume systems. The concept notes are the first stage, with full proposals requested of a selected subset of finalists from the first stage. This call for concept notes corresponds to the first of three Legume Systems Innovation Lab Area of Inquiry: Integration of legumes into sustainable smallholder farming systems and agricultural landscapes.
