Call for proposals "Local Authorities: Partnerships for sustainable cities 2020"

17/02/2020 - 11:01

The Partnerships programme for sustainable cities focus on strengthening urban governance, while at the same time ensuring social inclusiveness of cities, improving resilience and greening of cities and improving prosperity and innovation in cities.

The global objective of this Call for Proposals is to promote integrated urban development through partnerships built among Local Authorities of the EU Member States and of partner countries in accordance with the 2030 Agenda on sustainable development.

Partnerships will support Local Authorities from partner countries to address sustainable urban development through capacity building and service-delivery. Peer to peer exchanges of Local Authorities are at the heart of this approach. Actions could support the building of new partnerships or contribute to upscale long-lasting partnerships and cooperation relations.

The new political priorities of the EU, and notably the “New Green Deal”, will be taken into account by raising the importance of sustainability enhancement in the different specific objectives.

  1.     Strengthen urban governance
  2.     Ensure social inclusiveness of cities
  3.     Improve resilience and greening of cities
  4.     Improve prosperity and innovation in cities
  5.     Strengthen institutional resilience in context of fragility
