Switzerland: Consultancy – Documenting the Child and Adolescents Friendly City Platform in Belarus

 Finanzas, FULL TIME  Comments Off on Switzerland: Consultancy – Documenting the Child and Adolescents Friendly City Platform in Belarus
Jul 142018
 

Organization: UN Children’s Fund
Country: Switzerland
Closing date: 25 Jul 2018

UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.

And we never give up.

Background

Global CFC Movement:

The child-friendly cities movement globally targets attention of local administrations on children and has provided a channel for children themselves to become involved in the dialogue for CFCs.

The role of local government in the fulfilment of children’s rights was officially placed on the agenda in 1992 in Dakar, Senegal, when the Mayors Defenders of Children Initiative was launched by UNICEF. Within this framework, a wave of child-centred activities and programmes took shape and were initiated at the local level.

In 1996 the Child Friendly Cities Initiative was launched to act on the resolution passed during the second UN Conference on Human Settlements (Habitat II). The Conference declared that the well-being of children is the ultimate indicator of a healthy habitat, a democratic society and good governance.

A Movement of child friendly municipalities started flourishing in low, middle and high-income countries and an increasing number of cities promoted and implemented initiatives to realise the rights of the child. The CFC Initiative should be seen alongside with other related efforts such as UNESCO’s Growing Up in Cities and UN Habitat’s Safer Cities. The growing interest in CFC was rooted in several factors: the increasing number of children living in cities versus the limited structures and capacities of cities to respond to their needs; a general trend in governmental decentralisation; a growing interest in community approaches to meet the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs); and the recognition that civic engagement and child participation are key ingredients to good governance.

CFC Development in Belarus:

UNICEF in Belarus is currently in its third year of implementation of the UNICEF-Government of Belarus Country Programme of Cooperation for 2016-2020. The overall goal of the country programme is to support Belarus in closing equity gaps in the realization of children’s rights and applying the principle of the best interests of the child in national policy- and decision-making. The focus lies on the most disadvantaged among young children, children with disabilites, children deprived of parental care, juveniles in conflict and in contact with the law, children and women survivors of violence, and adolescents.

As development is increasingly driven by local communities and governments, UNICEF has been supporting the scaling up of the Child-Friendly City initiative in Belarus, aimed at creating an environment conducive to children’s participation and enhancing effectiveness of local planning and budgeting.

The National Coordination Body (Coordination Council on CAFC was established under the auspices of the National Commission on the Rights of the Child composing of the officials of the National Assembly, Ministries of Health, Education, Labor and Social Protection, Foreign Affairs, representatives of NGOs, Local Authorities and UNICEF. The Coordination Council is chaired by the Deputy Minister of Education and functions in accordance with the regulation.

The normative and methodological frameworks were developed including the methodological guidelines, regulation of the accession to the CAFC implementation and certification of the honorary title “Child and Adolescents’ Friendly-City,” and the assessment tool.

The capacity of local authorities and adolescents was strengthened through the policy and advocacy dialogues, workshops, trainings and roundtable discussions at the national and local levels to effectively address local development problems in the best interest of children, and ensure adolescents empowerment and participation.

25 children-youth parliaments are in function in Belarus as youth self-governance bodies. Children-Youth Parliaments created in cities participating in the CAFC platform and play an important role in the participation of active adolescents in local governance and decision-making. Adolescents become active agents of social change, develop and implement socially-oriented and creative initiatives and introduce innovations. During the last years, the focus was made on the engagement of children with disabilities and adolescents from the most vulnerable groups in the work of Children-Youth Parliaments.

At the beginning of 2018, 25 cities joined CFCI implementation, 15 of them completed assessment process, calculated CFC index and were accredited as Child and Adolescents Friendly Cities (CAFC): Novopolotsk, Pinsk, Brest, Pruzhany, Polotsk, Soligorsk, Zhodino, Baranovichy, Novogrudok, Slutsk,d Minsk, Mogilev, Ghorky, Klimovichy and Shklov.

An independent assessment of CFCI was conducted in 2015-2016. The assessment confirmed that the priorities of CFCI are highly relevant to the country’s context; the sustainability remains its strongest part; the assessment mechanism (Child Friendliness Index) is very comprehensive, well-designed and reliable tool for child rights monitoring; Children’s/Youth Parliament is the key achievement and serves as a platform for a productive dialogue between adolescents and the municipalities.

Future strategies envisage the greater focus on adolescents as an active agent of change and the tranformation from CFCI to Child and Adolscents City Platform that will be used as a tool for SDGs localization. The need for transformation is due to the growing recognition of the importance of children’s and adolescents’ interests and needs and their understanding as a cross-cutting concept which affects all the spheres of city life. Based on this context, the Child and Adolescent Friendly City platform provides supportive and enabling space for children and adolescents at all times and ensures whole-city involvement. The CAFC title confirms not only that the city is willing to be a part of global initiative, but its full commitment to development and actions in interests of young people.

CAFC Platform continues to be developed to explore opportunities in the future for analysis of budget allocations and local spending and capacity development. In this capacity, UNICEF will strive to create consensus around the benefit of investing more resources in children, using the central and local government budgets as tools, in order to achieve sustainable equitable progress in the realization of children’s rights. To monitor progress in CAFC a database of key Child and Adolescent Friendly City level of indicators will be developed as part of activities related to the SDG agenda localization.

    THE CHALLENGE

    ECW is seeking proposals for bold ideas to help address the billion-dollar finance gap for education in emergencies and protracted crises. Ideas should be substantive and have the potential to raise at least US$50 million per year continually (or US$100 million total once, if a onetime effort). Sources should allow the provision of grant funding as ECW is committed to providing equal and free education.

    GOAL AND DELIVERABLE

    The goal of the Challenge is to surface new and actionable ideas for large scale resource mobilization efforts with a real potential for implementation. Deliverable of the Challenge will be a unique idea and a business plan for implementation.

    THE PRIZE

    ECW will award up to three prizes of up to US$25,000 to those who can offer the best, most innovative and credible idea and a business plan for resource mobilization. In addition to the cash prize, ECW may consider supporting the implementation of winning proposals with seed funding.

    TIMELINE

    • Learn more during a webinar in July, 2018
    • Submit your idea by July 31, midnight in New York.
    • Present your idea to our Grand Jury, potentially in person, at the margins of the UN General Assembly in the
      third week of September 2018.
    • Turn your top three award-winning idea into a business plan for implementation by January 31, 2019.
    • Continue to work with us and bring education to children and youth in emergencies.

    IDEAS WE ARE LOOKING FOR

    1. Bold and large-scale: Ideas should be substantive and have the potential to raise at least US$50 million per year if they are for a continual resource mobilization effort or US$100 million total once, if they for a onetime resource mobilization effort)
    2. Grant funding: Education in emergencies and protracted crisis requires grant funding as ECW supports children and youth with free education. The proposed idea should mobilize resources that lend themselves to finance free education.
    3. Funding for education in emergencies and protracted crisis: Resources mobilized should be without restrictions to finance education in emergencies and protracted crisis in countries affected by conflict and war, natural disasters, pandemics, or refugee crisis and internal displacement.
    4. New sources of finance: ECW is seeking to identify and tap non-traditional sources of financing beyond bilateral donor contributions and mainstream philanthropy. Proposed ideas should not compete with or crowd out existing funding for education in emergencies.
    5. ECW mission and humanitarian principles: Resources mobilized should not conflict with the ECW vision to create a world where all children and youth affected by crisis can learn free of cost, in safety and without fear in order to grow and reach the full potential. They also should not conflict with the humanitarian principles of humanity, neutrality, impartiality, and independence

    How to apply:

    WHAT TO SUBMIT:

    We ask you to submit your idea with the following information:

    1. Idea: What it is, why it works, and how it is different from other funding sources (max 400 words).
