Synopsis: The EU-UNOPS Lives in Dignity (LiD) aims to efficiently and effectively channel funding to promote development-oriented approaches to new, recurrent, and protracted displacement crises, focusing on early operational engagements with a development focus. The foreseen overall impact of the LiD Grant Facility is that refugees and other displaced persons become productive members of their host communities and participate in
furthering their common resilience, socio-economic growth and development. To this end, the LiD Grant Facility allocates over EUR 24M through a number of funding cycles over the next four years
(2021-2025) to a diverse group of implementing partners.

The Facility focuses on five thematic areas:
● Economic livelihood development,
● Spatial planning, housing, and settlement,
● Integrated service delivery (e.g., education, health, water and sanitation, energy),
● Protection in development, and
● Addressing disaster and climate-related human mobility

This CFP is divided into three lots representing three different
displacement situations in three regions of the world:

  • Lot 1: Countries affected by both the Myanmar forced displacement situation and disaster/climate
    related displacement:(Bangladesh, Malaysia and Thailand). Multi-country projects may also include
    Myanmar*
  • Lot 2: Horn of Africa: Countries highly relevant to the Sudan – South Sudan situation (South Sudan,
    Sudan and Uganda)
  • Lot 3: Americas: countries highly affected by the Venezuela displacement situation (Aruba and
    Curacao, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, and Peru).
