Submit your proposals for the United Nations Trust Fund for Human Security 2022!
For the 2022 Call for Proposals, the United Nations Trust Fund for Human Security (UNTFHS) is accepting proposals for human security awareness and usage programmes only.Concept notes must be submitted by the Resident Coordinator or the highest-ranking UN official for regional commissions or similar entities.
Established in 1999 by the Executive Office of the Secretary-General (EOSG), the UNTFHS has been a pioneering financing mechanism, advancing integrated programmes by the UN system and partners that are comprehensive, people-centred, context-specific and preventive. Today, these principles of human security reflect in major global agendas and operational priorities of the UN system. As such, the UNTFHS helps catalyze new ways of thinking and partnering as well as concrete action to strengthen the UN’s ability to better deliver for people facing complex and intersecting challenges.
- US$300,000 for a period of 12-18 months
Proposals could focus on one or more of the following:
- Developing and piloting a human security integrated methodology, building upon most recent thinking and existing tools such as the Human Security Handbook, and updating tools such as conflict analysis and vulnerability assessments, among others, to ensure no one is left behind in rebuilding after crises, including COVID-19 and conflict.
- Proposing an integrated methodology that accounts for cross-cutting issues such as climate change and the environment, health, digitalization, inequality and exclusion, and/or works at the intersection of major agendas such as the 2030 Agenda and the Global Compact on Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration, among others.
- Preparing and testing operational guidance on how to use the human security lens to develop crisis responses to support Resident Coordinators and UN Country Teams in crisis contexts, including in operationalizing the humanitarian-development-peace nexus.
- Elaborating human security strategies to ingrain a preventive lens in data collection programme planning, or policy development to better prepare for or mitigate the impacts of compound crises that could derail sustainable peace and development.
- Establishing mechanisms and processes that enhance trust and collaboration among communities, between communities and governments, and across a range of stakeholders, based on the human security approach
