Bureau des Nations Unies pour les services d’appui aux projets (UNOPS)

Titre : Support to Cities Alliance Tunisia Country Programme

Pays : Tunisia

Durée : 01-Jan-2018 to 31-Dec-2023

Cities Alliance, which is legally hosted and administered by UNOPS, is a global partnership for the promotion of the role of cities in poverty reduction and sustainable development. Headquartered in Brussels and supported by a Secretariat, it is a unique partnership with a diverse membership including – global organisations of local authorities, national governments, international non-governmental organisations, foundations, knowledge networks and multilateral organisations – which have come together to strengthen both impacts and coherence in urban development. The Tunisia Country Programme is a partnership initiative that aims to foster strategic city planning, bring greater coherence among member and partner activities, and demonstrate the value of participatory local governance in Tunisia. Tunisia is at a turning point in its history, and cities are at the heart of these changes. Since 2011, it has been experiencing a unique societal change embodied by the rise of an active civil society, a new Constitution, and a vigorous decentralisation process. Cities and regions lack the resources or autonomy to foster local development, and they also face a high unemployment rate, urban sprawl, a lack of urban and land use policies, and low citizen participation in political, economic and social issues, especially among youth and women. The Cities Alliance initiative is a clear commitment to helping bolster the democratic process and the decentralisation initiatives begun by the national government, strengthening the new civil society, and positioning cities as the engine of local democracy and inclusive urban development, with a particular focus on non-coastal cities.
