Purpose of Call for Proposal: UN-Habitat’s Global Public Space Programme is launching a call for proposals (CFP) to seek partnership in the implementation of innovative public space projects in Bangladesh, Bolivia, Brazil, Ethiopia, Indonesia, Jamaica, Kenya, Kosovo, Kyrgyzstan, Lebanon, Mexico, Mongolia, Mozambique, Palestine, Peru, Senegal, South Africa, Syria and Vietnam.

Local authorities and non-profit organisations are invited to submit proposals which aim to achieve the following expected result:

Proposal must demonstrate that they contribute to the following outcome:
Improved local policies, plans and designs for safe, inclusive and accessible public spaces for all which supports more compact, better integrated and well connected, socially inclusive and resilient cities and neighbourhoods in partner cities.

What are they looking for?
In this call for proposals, UN-Habitat is looking for implementing partnerships with local governments and non-profit organisations that can manage and deliver innovative public space upgrading and regeneration projects. The projects will demonstrate that multifunctional public spaces can contribute to meeting the Sustainable Development Goals, specifically SDG11.7: “by 2030, provide universal access to safe, inclusive and accessible, green and public spaces, particularly for women and children, older persons and persons with disabilities”.

Interested applicants can either propose a project that demonstrates the importance of stakeholder engagement, citizen participation, assessments, quality design, policy and management for the development of multifunctional public space or a series of smaller projects (around 5-10) that demonstrate how smaller public space interventions such as street furniture, parklets, street lighting, bicycle parking, market stalls and other types of public space can have a larger impact on neighbourhoods and cities. All projects proposed must also show how children and youth or girls and women or older people or disabled people (or all) will be fully included in site selection, design, construction and management of the public space(s).

All project proposals must have the potential to be used as a demonstration project to show how collaborative public space design and upgrading can be used to meet the Sustainable Development Goals. The aim is to show that public space projects can have a big impact on urban life.

Projects must be ready to start immediately and be completed within a period of 12 months. Each Implementing Partner can receive up to $100,000 for the full portfolio, including administrative costs. The project or portfolio of projects should be implemented in the above selected countries.
