UN-Habitat Call for Expression of Interest in Burkina Faso
The Call for Expression of Interest is now open to solicit interest from existing or prospective Implementing Partners that wish to participate in UN-Habitat operation and contribute complementary resources to achieve common objectives.
This project aims to increase the opportunities for young people to be key actors for the prevention of land conflicts and for peace building; the activities in the project will enable them to play a more active role in the bodies and structures for the prevention and management of land conflicts while improving their sustainable and legal access to spaces for income generation, including agro-sylvo-pastoral production, exploitation and various transformations linked to natural resources in rural and peri-urban areas.
Purpose of CFP: Recruitment of an Implementing Partner (Civil Society Organization and/or Non-Governmental Organization) for the implementation of activities in the Hauts Bassins and Boucle du Mouhoun regions
The overall objective of the project is to contribute to the reduction of conflict risks through the promotion of inclusive and participatory processes, responsible and sustainable land governance and the increase of community resilience to environmental challenges and large-scale land transactions. Specifically, the project will:
Analyze conflict dynamics, stakeholders and socio-economic and structural challenges and build capacity of structures/mechanisms for conflict prevention and management in a more inclusive manner for young people (women and men).
Develop training opportunities, employment and economic activities for young people through transformative and innovative projects in an area undergoing urbanization and subject to climatic and environmental challenges.
