Sections 118 and 119 of the Foreign Assistance Act (FAA) mandate an analysis at the country strategy level that provides an opportunity for missions to integrate tropical forest and biodiversity conservation actions into their Regional and Country Development Cooperation Strategies (RDCS/CDCS). While this requirement has been in place for decades, this is new and improved guidance to help missions carry out these analyses.

The new FAA 118/119 Tropical Forest and Biodiversity Analysis Best Practices Guide provides practical "how-to" advice for USAID staff and contractors conducting the analysis. The best practices guide promotes a standardized application of best practices to assist missions with preparing for, managing, conducting and using the 118/119 analysis and better aligns the analysis with new requirements in USAID’s ADS Chapter 201: Program Cycle Operational Policy.

For missions interested in using/modifying the scope of work template, annotated outline and/or template for analysis report submission, a Word version of all the annexes can be found here.

USAID Staff can view an internal webinar highlighting updates to the guide and advice on how to help the Agency carry out 118/119 analyses on ProgramNet. Please click here for an external webinar on the guide with updates and advice for contractors.
