Cultural Programming in the People’s Republic of ChinaDepartment of StateChinaGrantDiplomacy; American Culture; Foreign Policy February 28, 2017The U.S. Government believes that building mutual understanding is a cornerstone of U.S. foreign policy abroad. U.S. embassies and consulates abroad seek to tell America’s story through explaining U.S. policies, values, culture, and history. To that end, the U.S. Mission to China (Embassy Beijing and Consulates General Chengdu, Guangzhou, Shanghai, Shenyang, and Wuhan) seeks to support activities that, whether through existing partnerships between eligible U.S. institutions and their Chinese counterparts or through new ties, help explain American culture to the people of China. Such programming will enhance and broaden the cultural and academic outreach of the U.S. Mission in China. The U.S. Embassy in Beijing seeks to ensure that programming is representative of the depth and breadth of U.S. culture, values, polices, and history. The U.S.-China relationship is one of the United States’ most important bilateral relationships. A great deal of work remains to be done in fostering mutual understanding between the peoples of the two nations. Cultural exchanges provide excellent opportunities to help people better understand others’ history, values, and traditions. The aim of this project is to help increase overall understanding of U.S. society and culture by the people of China. Solicitation Link
Breakthrough-ACTIONUSAIDGlobalCooperativeHealth Behaviors; Behavior Change; Health Interventions; Proven Practices; Malaria; HIV/AIDSMarch 3, 2017The purpose of the Breakthrough-ACTION project is to increase the practice of priority health behaviors and enabling social norms, including gender norms, for improved health and development outcomes, with an emphasis on improving FP/RH, HIV/AIDS, MNCH, and malaria health outcomes. This purpose will be achieved through the integration of proven social and behavior change (SBC) interventions in health and development programs worldwide. Breakthrough-ACTION will closely coordinate with its sister project, Breakthrough-RESEARCH (RFA-OAA-A-17-000001), to achieve this shared purpose through complementary efforts. Specifically: Breakthrough-RESEARCH will work to disseminate and advance research around SBC technical areas and interventions in which existing evidence is considered insufficient, while Breakthrough-ACTION will work to increase coverage of, and innovate based on, investments in SBC programming that already have significant evidence.Breakthrough-ACTION will build upon USAID investment in SBC research and programming, including both global and bilateral projects, to simultaneously guide new learning and drive broad application of proven practices and tools.

To be successful, the project must capitalize on previous investments and current efforts in SBC research and evaluation within and outside of USAID and focus on producing, packaging, and disseminating research that may be utilized by SBC implementers in their work. In addition to conducting and disseminating the social science research that has traditionally been the mainstay of USAID’s investments in SBC, Breakthrough-RESEARCH may also develop, test, or disseminate innovative or under-utilized research, monitoring, and evaluation approaches for SBC conducted by others that support tactical, real-time application of data in programmatic decision-making.

Cambodia Democratic Development ProgramUS Agency for International DevelopmentCambodiaGrantInternational Opportunities; Social SciencesMarch 17, 2017The goal of the program is to build more responsive, democratic local governance and service delivery in Cambodia. The selected implementing partner will be encouraged to build on what is already working and supporting ‘best fit’ rather than ‘best practice’ approaches and test pathways to advance democratic decentralization and strengthen accountability systems. The development hypothesis of this goal is that 1) if sub-national government authorities are able to more effectively and responsively fulfill their roles and responsibilities, and national government authorities effectively decentralize authorities to sub-national government authorities; 2) citizens, including those of marginalized populations, are empowered to use social accountability tools and engage in collective action for government accountability and effective service delivery; 3) and civil society and media effectively monitor public services and conduct budget analysis; then Cambodian citizens will experience more responsive, democratic local governance.
