On behalf of the EU, UNOPS invites interested and eligible applicants to submit proposals for a
research study on the impact of Covid-19 on the nutrition situation in Somalia. Details on the
application process and the administration of the grant programme are set forth in the Call for
Proposals (CFP) application document available here: https://www.ungm.org/Public/Notice/118136.
Interested applicants are encouraged to read the CFP and its annexes in their entirety prior to
applying. Below is a brief summary of the CFP.
The EU Partnership Coordination Facility for Somalia implemented by UNOPS, provides support by
filling in the identified gaps with flexible tools and mechanisms to implement the National
Development Plan structure. Coordinated efforts are essential in order to transform Somalia into a
more resilient, and improved, economic sector with greater security, gender equity, improved
human development, stronger infrastructure, and better access to basic services that are delivered
by accountable governmental institutions. This transformation is hindered by slow institutions that
are unable to respond quickly to emerging needs. The project will allow these needs to be identified
by the Recovery and Resilience Framework (RRF) and Somalia’s 9th National Development Plan
(NDP-9) Working Groups, and to be satisfied in a timely, strategic manner. The overall objective is to
contribute to strengthening the resilience of Somali communities to cope with, adapt and recover
from recurrent shocks.
