The Purpose

This case study competition seeks to understand and capture field-level learning on biodiversity integration into USAID programming across sectors. Your case study will help broaden knowledge and evidence on integration both within and outside of USAID.

The Competition

All USAID staff and implementing partners working on USAID projects and activities are eligible to enter this case study competition. We will consider all entries that:

  • address integration at any stage of the USAID program cycle.
  • receive USAID funding. Applicants are not required to receive biodiversity funding, and can come from any sector, but must address biodiversity in some aspect of their integration case.
  • are submitted in English by 3 May 2019. USAID staff and implementing partners are welcome to collaborate on joint submissions.

Applicants will be notified by 28 June and winning case studies will be posted on the Biodiversity Conservation Gateway.

USAID and BRIDGE will formally announce winning cases at a networking event in Washington, DC. co-hosted with USAID LEARN. Following the event, BRIDGE will work with winning cases to refine and package each case study.

The Judges

A high-level judging panel will evaluate submitted cases with representatives from USAID’s Bureau for Policy, Planning and Learning; E3 Office of Forestry and Biodiversity; and missions, as well as the BRIDGE team.

Judges include:

  • Cynthia Gill, Office Director, E3 Forestry and Biodiversity Office, USAID
  • Tony Pryor, Senior Advisor, Bureau for Policy, Planning and Learning, USAID
  • James Watson, Development Diplomat in Residence, USAID
