The United Nations Environment Program is issuing a call for proposals for cities interested in starting or scaling up ecosystem restoration efforts. This call for proposals is part of a global project called Generation Restoration funded by the Federal German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), which seeks to engage with eight pilot cities that will be selected for project funded catalytic grants to make the case, develop innovative policy approaches, and initiate implementation of urban ecosystem restoration and nature-based solutions implementation.

They are also looking for 5-10 role model cities to help strengthen advocacy at global level under the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration, participate in knowledge exchanges and work with pilot cities to kickstart their efforts on urban nature. The project duration is 21 months, starting in December 2023 and ending in September 2025.
