Scope of Work


The Agriculture and Rural Development Support Project, hereafter ARDS or the ARDS project, is implemented through a four-year, cost-plus-fixed-fee completion type task order funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). ARDS builds on USAID’s previous projects in Ukraine and lessons learned by USAID/Ukraine, Ukrainian partners, and other donors. ARDS is implemented by Chemonics International, Inc. and began on September 7, 2016.

The project exists to help create a better governed agriculture sector that provides attractive livelihoods in rural areas of Ukraine. The two areas of focus for ARDS are the enabling environment and market development, with a focus on selected rural areas. The project works both at the national and oblast level, with a special focus on rural development in southern and eastern Ukraine. The project embraces the collaborating, learning, and adapting (CLA) framework promoted by USAID and incorporated into ADS 201. Across all tasks of the contract, ARDS works with government institutions, private sector entities, and other partners in planning, monitoring, and mapping outcomes, and thereafter scaling up what works and/or adapting by redesigning strategies and tactics employed to implement tasks.
