Responses to this RFI shall not be portrayed as proposals and will not be accepted by the U. S. Government(USG) to form a binding agreement.

Responders are solely responsible for all expenses associated with responding to this RFI.

It should be noted that responding to or providing comment on this RFI will not give any advantage to any organization in any subsequent procurement.The RFI is a preliminary call for expressions of interest for a potential activity to support accelerated access to inclusive and resilient water supply, sanitation, and hygiene services in the lowlands of Ethiopia as described in the Attachment.

The purpose of this RFI is to solicit public feedback on the attached draft concept of the Climate Resilient Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (CR WASH) Activity, which is expected to be a five-year activity with anestimated total value of $30-$40 million, subject to the availability of funds.

Interested parties, including government, non-government organizations, academia, and the private sector are invited to provide responses to support this potential activity.In particular, USAID seeks feedback on the following key questions:
1. Are the objectives described in the draft concept feasible to achieve? If not, how could it be better designed? 2. Sanitation and hygiene gains, including menstrual health and hygiene, have been particularly hard-won in the lowlands.

What is the primary bottleneck? 3. Are there additional approaches to consider to ensure sustainability that should be considered within this activity? 4. What can be done to ensure more diversity and gender inclusivity in the implementation of this activity? 5. What opportunities exist within this activity to incorporate disaster response approaches, emergency actors and humanitarian financing to support long-term sustainable WASH service delivery? 6. What opportunities and constraints exist to private sector WASH service provision in the lowlands? Are there specific capacity, policy, financial, and/or institutional bottlenecks that must be addressed in order to unlock additional private sector participation?Comments and feedback on the draft concept note of the Climate Resilient WASH Activityshould not exceed five (5) pages.Responding to this RFI is strictly voluntary.

USAID/Ethiopia will not provide answers to any questions submitted in response to this request.

Pedagogy of the Oppressed, a 1970s book by author Paulo Freire, envisions a world not as a given reality, but as “a problem to be worked on and solved.” That mentality is often applied to the greatest social entrepreneurs.
