UNDP intends to engage into a contractual actual agreement for a period of 9 months, for the implementation of a national media and outreach campaign on reconciliation to design appropriately targeted and cost- effective programmatic interventions to promote national reconciliation.  The service provider will design various outreach, sensitization and communications tool, activities and products, elaborate diverse communications materials on various support, establish relevant partnerships with key media and social media outlets, and implement the outreach campaign nationally over an initial period of 9 months, effective from the signature of contract.

The proposal should include details on:

  • The establishment of partnerships and networks with influential national TV, radios, blogs, social media, and online channels in order to design and broadcast live debate programs, documentaries, cartoons cultural events and spots on national reconciliation, contributing to building the national sentiment and fighting against hate speech, divisions and stereotypes. The partnerships proposed should contribute to build and sustain local/national ownership for the reconciliation process, and target both positive audience (agents of change) and spoilers (agents of risks). The proposal should specifically demonstrate the bidder’s capacity in establishing these partnerships.
  • The detailed campaign’s design and implementation plan, including messaging, tools, types of products, topics to address, timeline of action in the targeted areas and groups, based on the detailed list below.
