2020 Open Request for Proposals (RFPs)
Pest Risk Information Service (PRISE): Dissemination & Crowdsourcing
PRISE (prise.org) helps to improve the livelihoods of smallholder farmers by reducing crop losses caused by pests across four-sub Saharan African countries.
The PRISE project is at an exciting stage where pest models have been developed for a number of crops and are ready to be sent to users. PRISE is looking for partners in Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, and Zambia who can offer services to disseminate pest alerts and collect feedback from users. It is expected that PRISE pest alerts will complement an existing agri-information service already establised by the partner, and reach a user-base of farmers and agri-extension personnel, with PRISE pest alerts offering value-addition to this service.
PRISE anticipates selecting multiple partners for this scope of work, therefore it is not expected that submissions cover all countries, and that PRISE may work with multiple partners in the same country.
