The United Nations Road Safety Fund (UNRSF) recently announced a call inviting qualified Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) from low-to-middle-income countries to submit Expressions of Interest to be considered for direct access to UNRSF grants in the future. The call for expressions runs until 18 November 2022.
The Fund’s 2022 – 2025 Business Plan expressly commits to exploring ways of opening up direct access to its global pooled fund to participating UN organizations and viable non-UN organizations alike. This Call for Expression of Interest to CSOs is a first step and direct response to that commitment.
Applying CSOs must meet certain conditions to be eligible for the assessment under the call. The requirements state that the organization must; (1) be registered as a non-profit nongovernmental organization; semi-governmental organization; non-profit company, or cooperative society, (2) be able to implement required road safety interventions in more than one LMIC, (3) have a proven track record of implemented road safety interventions in one or more of the Fund’s five areas, (4) employ more than three staff members, (5) demonstrate the existence of a governance framework, and (6) be willing to mandatorily undertake the micro-assessment under the Harmonized Approach to Cash Transfers (HACT) framework.
Expressions and inquiries must be made in the English language and sent to the firstname.lastname@example.org
