Additional Criteria for Applicants:

Review general eligibility requirements

Indonesia: Universities and non-governmental research institutions are eligible to receive PEER funding. While laboratories managed within government agencies are not eligible to apply for PEER funding, it is encouraged that proposed research submitted by universities and non-governmental research institutions include potential collaborations with government-managed laboratories.


The USAID Water Strategy identifies the availability of water to sustain human life and natural systems as integral to the success of many foreign policy and development goals. The focus of this call is to support research collaborations that will enable capacity building and evidence-based decision making for sustainable utilization of water resources for competing needs ie., people, agriculture, industrialization and ecosystems. It is also intended to assist Missions in elevating their use of science and technology to address local and global development challenges in the area of water resource management.

The program will establish long-lasting research relationships that build capacity and enable collaborators to become better partners in development. We aim to support and reinforce the use of existing platforms, programs and initiatives such the Famine Early Warning System Network (FEWS NET), the Feed the Future Initiative (USAID), and other international water activities within the portfolios of partner agencies. The program strongly supports research teams that utilize these platforms. Consortia and research teams across agencies, national boundaries and scientific disciplines are also strongly encouraged.
