PASADENA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Tetra Tech, Inc. (TTEK) announced today that the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) awarded the Company a $650 million, multiple-award contract to develop innovative solutions to address land rights challenges around the world. Secure property rights provide a foundation for sustainable natural resource management, access to water resources, economic growth, and improved food security.
Under the five-year Strengthening Tenure and Resource Rights II (STARR II) contract, Tetra Tech will provide technical support services to USAID, including the use of geospatial tools, mobile technologies, and secure data management processes to document and formalize land tenure and property rights.
USAID also awarded Tetra Tech the first task order under the STARR II contract. The 5-year, $25 million Integrated Land and Resource Governance task order will support the development of targeted solutions to strengthen land and resource rights in Africa, Asia, Latin America and/or the Middle East. Tetra Tech will provide technical expertise to strengthen legal frameworks and land administration, improve land-based investments, and facilitate access of rights for women and other vulnerable populations.
“Tetra Tech is pleased to support USAID’s work to establish rights to property and natural resources for individuals and institutions,” said Dan Batrack, Tetra Tech’s Chairman and CEO. “Tetra Tech’s land rights practice has worked for more than two decades strengthening land tenure policies to foster climate-resilient communities, sustainable resource management and economic development.”
