Request for Proposal – Live streaming of imaginative Events
Overview :UNDP has partnered with the Federal Government of Nigeria to produce the Imagine Nigeria Report which assesses and provides insight into how the crises facing Nigeria also present opportunities for Nigeria to build a more inclusive and resilient nation.  The outputs of the exercise, Imagine Nigeria, is now ready for launch.  It is a foresight-oriented exercise that is neither a prediction of the future nor a national plan, rather it is an invitation to all Nigerians for a country-wide conversation on the future of the nation. The exercise explores the major trends that will help to shape the future of Nigeria, offers alternative scenarios of the future, and provides a series of actionable recommendations to ensure national transformation. The findings and recommendations came to life through a participatory exercise involving over 300 stakeholders and experts, both nationally and internationally, which was guided by a High-Level panel made up of eminent stakeholders across government, private sector, and civil society.With the outputs of Imagine Nigeria—publications, interactive website, film documentaries, and toolkits—concluded and the planning for the launch ongoing, UNDP will support a second phase of the exercise, which will focus on the dissemination of the outputs and the seeding of the transformation ideas. While Imagine Nigeria is neither a planning nor a national visioning exercise, it is expected to serve as a catalyst for a national dialogue on the future. In addition, the outputs of the exercise are meant to provide inputs for key stakeholders in their decision-making. Among the stakeholders are the government which holds the responsibility for national planning as well as other major actors including the private sector and civil society with interests and critical roles to play in determining the future outcomes for Nigeria.As part of the dissemination of outputs, a series of “Imaginate Events” will be organized across Nigeria, with at least one taking place in each geo-political zone. The events will be hybrid (online and offline) and aim to ensure that the maximum number of people have access to the dialogues. Each event will be co-organized with partner institutions and should have a half-day duration. UNDP is now seeking a highly qualified, professional service provider for live streaming each Imaginate event, which includes dedicated internet services, on-site technical support, and audiovisual equipment to be used in the live streaming.OBJECTIVE OF THE ASSIGNMENTTo live stream each of the seven scheduled Imaginate events (half a day).
