What do we accept as a TAP project? Two project types are called for:
TAP applicants should have the potential to transform society, and particularly respond to ACI – ambitious, cross-cutting, and inclusive. These 3 key components of “transformative” are captured in the definition below:
First-time projects/ action plans that will serve a meaningful percentage of the population
Existing projects/ action plans that will be scaled up and that will serve an increasingly large amount of the population/ jurisdiction area/etc.
Demonstrate how citizens, in particular those identified from disadvantaged communities, will benefit in the short- and mid-term, e.g. urban poor, unemployed, elderly, youth, women, ethnic minorities, etc.
Improve different aspects of the location by optimizing the use of local resources [air, water, waste, land, biodiversity / ecosystems, energy] across services and sectors
Contribute to national and global sustainability goals (SDGs)
Coordinate within the city administration, i.e. cross-departmental coordination processes and mechanisms have to be in place to assure effective project implementation and financing
Engage citizens and local stakeholders actively, encouraging their participation in the design, implementation and monitoring of the project.
Establish concrete efforts to foster collaboration and cooperation with govern-mental stakeholders at all governance levels: municipal, local, sub-national, national, regional
