PASADENA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Tetra Tech, Inc. (TTEK) announced today that the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) awarded the Company a $22 million, single-award contract to support biodiversity protection and enhance livelihoods in Madagascar.
The five-year USAID Mikajy activity—which means “taking good care of” in Malagasy, the national language of Madagascar—is part of USAID Madagascar’s Conservation and Communities Project. Through the USAID Mikajy activity, Tetra Tech will support critical biodiversity conservation efforts in forested and coastal ecosystems and empower local communities in these regions to locally manage their natural resources, while also providing new economic opportunities and support for natural resource tenure and property rights.
USAID Mikajy will use innovative tools and science-based analyses to strengthen government territorial planning efforts at the local level and improve water and resource infrastructure and governance. USAID Mikajy also will develop public-private partnerships by linking rural producers with investors and establish resource advocacy networks to strengthen land use and access rights. Components of the activity also will address climate change resilience and engagement of women and youth.
“Tetra Tech is pleased to support USAID’s work in Madagascar to conserve the island’s world-renowned biodiversity, while improving the lives of its citizens,” said Dan Batrack, Tetra Tech’s Chairman and CEO.
