GISF is seeking to hire a consultant or team of consultants to carry out research for its forthcoming publication on Good practices, lessons learnt, and the unique challenges affecting security risk management in urban humanitarian responses.
The aim of this project is the creation of a long-read article (approximately 18 pages) that identifies the unique factors in urban environments that pose a challenge for humanitarian operations. The article should identify how these challenges impact SRM by touching on operational modalities and conceptual issues. Finally, the article should identify good practices and transferable lessons learnt so readers can better understand and adapt to those challenges when conducting humanitarian work in urban settings.
Interested candidates should submit (1) a one-page cover letter signalling their motivation for this project, (2) a 500-word abstract summarising their ideas for the article, and (3) a resume of the individual(s) submitting the proposal.
The above should be sent to Dan Ford at firstname.lastname@example.org and Panos Navrozidis at email@example.com.
Deadline for proposal submissions: 07 July.
