DESCRIPTION

 

Global objective

As most local authorities in the EaP region lack experience with designing and implementing urban development projects, the supporting mechanism is essential to help them prepare and implement projects in a way that ensures the greatest impact and sustainability. Technical assistance through the supporting mechanism shall be provided to assist the project applicants under the SUDeP Call for Proposals (local municipalities, and if/when relevant, Covenant Supporters or Territorial Coordinators  but it could also include NGOs).

 

The specific objective of this project is to assist the project applicants under the SUDeP Call for Proposals. Under the SUDeP Call for Proposals local authorities will implement measures incorporated in their Sustainable Energy Action Plans (SEAPs) under the Covenant of Mayors. This project shall provide technical assistance to these local authorities during the project design phase and during the project implementation phase. This will be done by setting up a supporting mechanism. It is expected that approximately 15 to 25 projects will be awarded a grant under the Call for Proposals.

 

The purpose of this Supporting Mechanism is to:

 

Support EaP municipalities –signatory of the Covenant of Mayors- and that applied for a grant under the call for proposals related to the SUDeP programme. This will be done through technical advice and capacity-building support, in designing high-quality proposals for sustainable urban demonstration projects, including high-quality project financing plans. As a consequence, the Commission should receive better prepared technical proposals with more realistic implementation plans and budgets, which will lead to overall better results of the SUDeP action.

Support EaP municipalities to better implement urban demonstration projects by providing guidance and oversight during project implementation.

 

Ensure good communication, visibility and spread of results of the programme and its demonstration projects, in particular dissemination of good practices that could serve as model actions in the implementation of SEAPs in other municipalities (possibly including exchanges between neighbourhood regions).

Encourage the beneficiaries to connect to other EaP cities and EU cities by organising networking activities during the design phase and the implementation phase of the demonstration projects.
