Call for proposals: Civil society for better democracy

CSO hubs

Are you part of a civil society organization based in Ukraine? Do you have an idea for a project that can improve dialogue between civil society organizations and government bodies? Do you think you can implement your project within a year and with a UNDP grant of no more than 30,000 USD?

We are looking for proposals that:

  • Consider more effective ways of using the already existing tools for dialogue between CSOs and government bodies (for example, aim at citizen participation in decision-making at the local level and in the process of forming and using the funds of the local budgets; supporting the local initiatives, mechanisms of the local democracy, public control and government accountability; creating innovative tools for stimulating citizen engagement; advancing the reform agenda at the subnational level; engaging CSOs in the implementation of the National Strategy for Facilitation of the Civil Society Development at the subnational levels, and others);

  • Use the existing legal and regulatory frameworks to create new platforms for interaction, while ensuring the sustainability of such platforms after the end of the project;

  • Propose realistic and well-thought-out advocacy and lobbying activities to support changes in the existing legal and regulatory frameworks to improve the dialogue between CSOs and state entities.
