Request for Quotation for Insurance Services

Issue Date: March 13, 2023

KISAN II is a seven-year project that contributes to the Government of Nepal (GON)’s Agricultural Development Strategy (ADS). Over the course of its first five years of operation (July 2017 through July 2022), the USAID’s Feed the Future Nepal Knowledge-based Integrated Sustainable Agriculture (KISAN II) project worked to increase resilience, inclusiveness, and sustainability of income growth through agriculture development by focusing on five value chains: vegetables, rice, maize, lentils, and goats. Under a two-year supplemental scope (extension), KISAN II is currently operating in eight districts in Lumbini, Karnali, and Sudurpaschim Provinces to help bring transformational change to the rice and maize sub-sectors and to connect migrant returnees and others heavily affected by COVID-19 with agriculture-related opportunities. The project initiated additional USAID’s supplementary scope of work (SOW) in September 2022 to help address localized impacts stemming from Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
