4 1. Introduction The purpose of this document is to provide comprehensive information to potential applicants on priorities, criteria and application procedures for the New World: Inclusive Sustainable Human Development Initiatives Project Overall Goal and Objectives The overall goal of the program is to accelerate achievement of the MDGs and help building resilient and healthy communities as the world adapts into the newly shaped Sustainable Development Goals to set the post-2015 global developmental agenda. The objectives of the program are: 1. To provide sustainable access to safe water and/or sanitation services in communities in more than 10 countries; 2. To apply community-based integrated active healthy living and disease prevention approaches to enhancing wellness of societies; 3. To empower women and youth, improve education and generate job opportunities to build resilient communities. Over 20 recipient communities in more than 20 countries are expected to benefit from the program implementation through improved access to safe water and sanitation services, improved health and education, empowerment of women and youth and support of active and healthy lifestyles Background With the deadline for the MDGs on the horizon, progress can be reported in most areas, despite the impact of the global economic and financial crisis. Several important targets have or will be met by 2015, assuming continued commitment by national governments, the international community, civil society and the private sector. That said, progress in many areas is far from sufficient. Redoubled efforts are urgently needed, particularly in regions most behind to jumpstart advancement and achieve maximum gains. There are significant regional and in-country disparities in the progress towards achievement of the MDG7 on drinking water and sanitation. Drinking water coverage has increased in all regions except the Caucasus and Central Asia. There, coverage rates dropped from 89 per cent in 1990 to 86 per cent in Eastern Asia, South-Eastern Asia and Southern Asia showed the largest gains. Six in 10 people who gained access to improved drinking water sources live in urban areas. In Central Asia, there are a variety of pressures on water resources, ranging from irrigation, reduced river flow, competing needs, and transboundary pressures on water resources. While community associations such as Water User Associations and Pasture Committees represent an important step forward in resource management, women are often underrepresented in those organizations. In the Western Balkans, water use is increasingly under pressure, and climate change scenarios indicate that 1

5 shortages will worsen. Water is also an important issue for countries in the sub-region as countries have prioritized the development of an appropriate water supply and treatment infrastructure. At the national level, resource management is not effectively monitored and enforced, and at the subnational level, district-level, and community-level governments and citizens often lack the decision-making tools and effective structures for determining the optimal use of resources. The trend towards urbanization across the region has placed new pressures on resource use and on government capacity to respond effectively. On sanitation, the greatest progress has been made in Eastern Asia, where sanitation coverage increased from 27 per cent in 1990 to 67 per cent in East Asia/Pacific, Latin America & Caribbean, and Arab States are on or near to achieving the sanitation target. Sub- Saharan Africa and Oceania remain farthest behind. Moreover, across all regions individual countries need significant acceleration if the sanitation MDG target is to be met. This underscores that the rate of progress has to increase dramatically and much additional work will remain beyond The importance of involving equally women and men in the management of water and sanitation has been recognized at the global level, starting from the Dublin Principles developed at the 1992 International Conference on Water and Environment which recognize women s role in water management in its Principle Three. This Principle states Acceptance and implementation of this principle requires positive policies to address women s specific needs and to equip and empower women to participate at all levels in water resources programmes, including decision making and implementation, in ways defined by them. The Rio+20 Outcome Document The Future we want recognized the safe and affordable drinking water and basic sanitation services are necessary elements for achieving women s empowerment. Moreover the UN resolution establishing the International Decade for Action Water for Life, calls for women s participation and women s involvement in water related development efforts. Climate change has had an unequal impact on the poorest and most vulnerable communities in developing countries and has a potential to threaten the achievement of Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in particular MDG 1 (Eradicate extreme poverty and hunger), MDG 3 (Promote gender equality and empower women), MDG 7 (Ensure environmental sustainability) as well as MDG 6 (Combat HIV-AIDS, malaria and major epidemics). Reducing vulnerabilities and building resilient societies start with local, community-based initiatives that engage multiple stakeholders at various levels to design and implement measures that empower communities and broaden livelihood opportunities. 2

6 The sustainable development agenda provides an opportunity to address inequalities and reshape policies to empower women, so that they can become catalytic agents of change and equal partners with men in the quest to promote growth that is inclusive, just, equitable and sustainable. With women s engagement, success in eradicating poverty, promoting sustainable consumption and production patterns and sustainable management of natural resources can be achieved. Sustainable development requires that governments have the resources, strategies and capacity to adopt the necessary principles and approaches and integrate them fully at national and sub-national levels. While the world has taken important steps to voice its support for sustainable development, many ecosystems and natural habitats are under threat due to unsustainable management practices, which pose further risks to freshwater supplies, forests and biodiversity. If unchecked, these trends could threaten food security and prospects for economic growth, and create new sources of conflict and instability (New World Project Document, 2014). 1.3 The Initiation of the New World Project UNDP has partnered with The Coca-Cola Company and The Coca-Cola Foundation since 2006 under a successful program named Every Drop Matters, working towards the achievement of MDG 7 target on drinking water. UNDP also sought support of The Coca-Cola Company in advocacy of UN My World Survey, which targets to improve citizen contribution in shaping the global post-2015 development agenda. Over 1.5 million votes collected in the campaign by the end of 2013 indicated that people around the world prioritized the following ten topics as the most critical areas of sustainable human development: 1. Good Education 2. Better Healthcare 3. Better job opportunities 4. Honest and responsive government 5. Access to clean water and sanitation 6. Affordable and nutritious food 7. Protection against crime and violence 8. Protecting rivers, forests and oceans 9. Freedom from discrimination and persecution 10. Equality between men and women The New World: Inclusive Sustainable Human Development Initiatives Project will have three main intervention areas to address six of these ten priority areas (Numbered 1, 2, 3, 5, 8 and 10): 3

7 1- Community water stewardship to increase access to safe drinking water and sanitation services and adaptation to climate change and improved water resources management through inclusive and practical community based approaches; 2- Supporting active lifestyles and diseases prevention for enhanced community wellbeing; 3- Empowering women and youth through improved education and job creation for more resilient communities. The Program will develop an inclusive partnership mechanism with The Coca-Cola Foundation to encourage participation of civil society organizations (NGOs, CBOs) to support innovative, inclusive and sustainable solutions across several regions. 4
