In December 2020, the European Union (EU), the United Nations (UN) and the World Bank Group (WBG) launched the Reform, Recovery and Reconstruction Framework (3RF). The 3RF provides a costed and prioritized plan of key actions over the next 18 months across various sectors to support the recovery and reconstruction of Beirut following the tragic explosion of August 4, 2020.
The inclusion of civil society in the governance and implementation of reform, recovery, and reconstruction is a core principle of the 3RF. Civil society is therefore represented in the recently established 3RF Consultative Group, the LFF Partnership Council and Working Groups.
This Call for Expression of Interest is being issued by the EU-UN-World Bank 3RF Technical Team and aims to facilitate the nomination of three vacant civil society representation (“Civil Society Organizations” – CSOs) in the IOB after the first call for expression of interest on 28 April 2021.
CSOs are non-State, not-for-profit, voluntary entities formed by people in the social sphere representing a wide range of interests and ties. In the context of the IOB, CSOs may include (i) NGOs with expertise related to inclusion, transparency, and accountability, (ii) representatives of academia/think tanks/citizen initiatives or other community-based organizations, and (iii) professional and/or business/private sector associations.
Deadline for applications is 3 February 2022.
