Institutions and organizations from 12 countries participated in the call for proposals, the majority of them from Central America. Participants were from both the public and private sectors, to open the possibility for public-private funding partnerships at the local level.
The OAS team in charge of this initiative is analyzing the proposals with the support of an Executive Committee made up of specialized agencies and nongovernmental organizations with technical expertise in urban development, as well as representatives of U.S. government agencies. The technical aspects that will be evaluated include innovation, impact and scope, sustainability and inclusion, and gender sensitivity.
