AUPP is seeking EOIs for advocacy projects that:

  • Address a behavioral and/or policy change on one or both of the following themes:
  • Civic engagement: Advocacy projects under this theme should aim to increase and institutionalize dialogue between communities and local authorities (municipalities, line ministries, and police).
  • Urban safety services: Projects under this theme can extend to a wide range of safety issues, including but not limited to personal security, environment, traffic and movement, use of public spaces.
  • Clearly demonstrate how vulnerable groups like women and girls, children, youth, the elderly, disabled people, people with substance abuse issues, IDPs and returnees will be positively impacted.
  • Include capacity development for the CSO as well as community members who will be engaged in the project.
  • Will be implemented in one or more of AUPP’s eight target cities (Kabul, Mazar, Herat, Jalalabad, Nili, Bamyan, Kunduz and Farah).

Expected Outcomes

  • Municipalities in collaboration with line departments better plan and implement demand-driven and inclusive services in the area of safety and security.
  • Communities particularly excluded and under-represented groups, increasingly and with a spirit of solidarity engage in civic affairs and municipal governance.
  • National government establishes framework for accountable, transparent and participatory municipal governance in particular in the area of safety and security.
