The USAID Agriculture and Rural Development Support (ARDS) Project is a four-year, $20 million project designed to support broad-based, resilient economic growth through a more inclusive, competitive, and better-governed agriculture that provides attractive livelihoods in rural areas of Ukraine.
ARDS helps create a better governed agriculture sector that provides attractive livelihoods in rural areas of Ukraine. The project works both at the national and regional level, with a special focus on rural development in southern and eastern Ukraine. ARDS embraces the collaborating, learning, and adapting (CLA) framework promoted by USAID. Across all tasks of the contract, ARDS works with government institutions, private sector entities, and other partners in planning, monitoring, mapping outcomes, and thereafter scaling up what works and/or adapting by redesigning strategies and tactics employed to implement tasks. The two main areas in which ARDS works are the enabling environment in agriculture and markets, with a focus on rural development.
