UN-HABITAT Urban Youth Fund 2012

UN-HABITAT’s Urban Youth Fund 2012 aims at advancing the achievement of Millennium Development Goals (MDG) and the Habitat Agenda by supporting youth-led projects implemented in cities and towns of developing countries. The Fund is established with support from the Government of Norway.

The Fund seeks to provide assistance to youth-led NGOs to develop and implement projects that will contribute to sustainable urbanization in the developing world. Young persons in the age group of 15 and 32 years can apply to receive this support through legally registered organizations in developing countries. Persons above the age of 32 years can still take part in the projects demonstrating adult-youth partnerships. Involvement of girls and young women in decision-making at all levels of the organization is another important criterion.
