ACCESS TO JUSTICE AND RULE OF LAW PROJECT
Request for Proposals (RFP) for Small Grants
Request for Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) including NGOs and/or CBOs for application of Small Grants to conduct public outreach awareness-raising and information dissemination on transitional justice
Deadline for proposal submission: 21 January 2019
The UNDP’s Support to Access to Justice and Rule of Law project (A2J/RoL) aims contribute to national priorities in line with the United Nations Cooperation Framework (UNCF).
The Project provides support for transitional justice initiatives in South Sudan, including the implementation of Chapter V of the Revitalised Agreement on the Resolution of Conflict in the Republic of South Sudan (R-ARCSS). The project's support to transitional justice in South Sudan consists of technical assistance to the rule of law institutions; the gauging of perceptions of South Sudanese on issues related to truth, justice, reconciliation and healing; development of policy and discussion papers; creating space for dialogue and raising awareness through workshops, lectures and conferences; and support to civil society in promoting transitional justice.
As part of its support to transitional justice initiatives, UNDP intends to promote awareness and disseminate information on transitional justice amongst traditional leaders, youth, women and the general public both at national level and in the states. To this end, UNDP intends to partner with civil society to implement initiatives that will ensure that information reach out to the public and create awareness on transitional justice and the agreed upon mechanisms. This call for proposal invites national Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) to submit proposals for projects that will contribute to this awareness-raising.
