Call for Project Ideas

CityNet is calling for proposals from its cluster members.

In his notice to members, Secretary-General Vijay Jagannathan said CityNet clusters have been instrumental in decentralizing the work of CityNet and in helping CityNet achieve its long-term objectives. ‘It is our pleasure to keep supporting our cluster’s initiatives by announcing the 2017-2018 Cluster Call for Proposal. For this year, we are reconfiguring our cluster support mechanism into a grant program’, he added.

One project will be selected out from the total number of proposals to be received. Up to 15,000 USD will be granted to the selected proposal for a 12-month period to be implemented starting September 2017.

Project proposal must include joint activities with CityNet cluster members.

Currently, CityNet has four clusters – Climate Change, Disaster, Infrastructure, and Sustainable Development Goals. Each cluster has its Lead and Co-Lead cities.

See attached documents for complete guidelines and proposal format. Deadline for submission is on July 28, 2017, Friday.

Around the world, cities are facing #environmentalhazards like extreme #heat, #landslides, #pollution, and #flooding. To enhance #resilience to #climatechange impacts, cities must monitor and address these hazards. Earth observations can help cities understand and enhance urban resilience and make better decisions for planning, urban #greening, monitoring, and more.

This 3-part, introductory webinar series will provide an overview of the Earth Observations Toolkit for Sustainable Cities and Human Settlements, an online knowledge resource that shares ready-to-use Earth observation data sets and tools. These resources can be applied in policy areas that are important to resilient and sustainable cities. Such areas include sustainable urban planning, adequate #housing, access to #publictransport, and access to public spaces.
