ME&A is a subcontractor to Tetra Tech ARD under the Strengthening Tenure and Resource Rights II IDIQ (STARR II)—a $650 million, multi-faceted field support mechanism with multiple consortiums available for field Missions and other USAID Offices and Bureaus to buy in to for activities through July 2025. STARR II is designed to provide short- and long-term technical assistance to improve land tenure, property rights, and resource governance through targeted interventions or integrated activities in support of broader development objectives.
Given the cross-cutting nature of property rights and resource governance issues, Task Orders under STARR II can cover a wide variety of sectors. These include food security; economic growth; conflict mitigation and management; democracy and governance; environment and natural resource management; artisanal and small-scale mining; key self-reliance issues, such as domestic resource mobilization and women’s economic empowerment; and technical support services, such as the use of geospatial tools, mobile technologies, and secure data management processes to document and formalize land tenure and property rights.
STAR II is a follow-on to the USAID Strengthening Tenure and Resources Rights (STARR) IQC. ME&A was a subcontractor to Tetra Tech International Development under STARR as well.
