Catholic Relief Services is the official international humanitarian agency of the Catholic community in the United States. CRS works to save, protect, and transform lives in need in more than 100 countries, without regard to race, religion or nationality. CRS’ relief and development work is accomplished through programs of emergency response, HIV, health, agriculture, education, microfinance and peacebuilding.
Catholic Relief Services (CRS)/Mali is preparing a response to the USAID Food for Peace (FFP) Development Food Security Activities (DFSA) Request for Applications (RFA). The overall goal of the proposed program will be to improve food security and resilience of communities in conflict-affected areas through strengthening local systems and community participation in up to four regions of Mali: Mopti (all communes), Tombouctou (all communes), Gao (Gao and Ansongo cercles), and Segou (Niono cercle). The estimated timeframe for this program is October 2020 – September 2025.
The CLA Lead She/he will work closely with all staff to ensure collaboration and learning with other activities in the selected implementation area. S/he will ensure the activity includes active, intentional and adaptive learning within and across interventions, and will play a critical role in incorporating ‘refinement’ activities and learning into implementation. This includes but is not limited to U.S. Government, host country government, international donors, multilateral organizations, and private sector investments. Additionally, the CLA Lead will improve peer-to-peer learning, knowledge sharing and application, activity-based capacity strengthening, evidence and data utilization, and adaptive management both within and beyond initial refinement. The CLA Lead will also be expected to ensure appropriate and continued coordination and joint-planning with other USAID and donor activities, specifically the USAID Mali Resilience portfolio, host-government initiatives, and private sector engagement.
