CSOs are key transparency and accountability actors and have a critical role to play in fostering partnerships and supporting the adaption of short-term and long-term policies and solutions on climate action. To facilitate a more productive and beneficial interaction around climate action, UNDP calls for a collaborative engagement between civil society actors and state institutions. A collaborative engagement approach can harness the collective power of CSOs and bring about positive social change and build a powerful socio-economic and political agenda to address climate change.
This call for Expressions of Interests from CSOs (including youth organizations, think tanks, academia, etc.,) is to seek proposals from qualifying organizations/coalitions on the most topical and challenging areas that affect engagement in climate action.
