CALL FOR PROPOSALS: 2022 Capital Investment Facility for Sustainable Urban Development

Category: Open Calls
Organizations: UN Habitat

UN-Habitat Kosovo jointly with Ministry of Local Government Administration and Ministry of Environment, Spatial Planning and Infrastructure are pleased to inform you of the launch and open call for proposals for the 2022 Capital Investment Facility (CIF). The call is open to all 38 Kosovo municipalities with a focus on the following key principles:

  • Social cohesion - jointly shaping coexistence across local communities
  • Intermunicipal cooperation – working across boundaries for common agendas
  • Sustainable urban renewal - designing climate-friendly, vibrant neighborhoods

The CIF supports the physical construction or arrangement of sustainable facilities or infrastructure or services that are linked to spatial plans, beneficial to the environment, and with a direct impact on improving people’s lives in support of the localization of the Sustainable Development Goals in Kosovo. Through co-financing capital investment projects, the CIF transfers knowledge and enhances capacities of municipal officials and relevant stakeholders to plan, select and design projects and to manage and monitor the implementation process as well as the future sustainable operations, while actively supporting climate action at the local level. Joint projects between two or more municipalities and/or with civil society organizations are strongly encouraged through lower co-financing contribution by municipalities and the possibility of accessing higher co-financing support from the CIF, up to Euro 400,000 per project. 

To support municipalities with necessary information and partners’ experience on project identification/ selection, the UN-Habitat/MLGA CIF team will organize 7 regional based workshops and a pre-finalization meeting with all municipal and civil society counterparts throughout January and early February 2022 back-to-back with regional workshops regarding the COVID-19 socio-economic impact assessment. Exact dates and invitations will be shared in due course.
