Call for proposals: research linking humanitarian response and development in urban contexts

Deadline: 11 November 2016 - 12:00am

Website: http://www.iied.org/call-for-proposals-for-research-linking-humanitarian-response-development-urban-contexts

IIED is inviting proposals for original research that can contribute to our understanding of the links between humanitarian response and development goals, with specific reference to urban humanitarian crises.

Researchers have to submit proposals for research projects that can contribute to our understanding of the nexus between humanitarian response and development goals, and the ways in which they can complement each other, with specific reference to urban humanitarian crises.

With funding from the Department for International Development (DFID), the IIED Urban Crises Learning Fund aims to build an in-depth understanding of how the humanitarian sector can most effectively operate in urban contexts.

This work aims to inform the activities of  ‘operational’ organisations, and to provide useable lessons for local governments, national and international NGOs and bilateral funding agencies. Further details of the Urban Crises Learning Fund and existing publications can be found at www.iied.org/urban-crises-learning-fund.

More information on the call for proposals can be found on IIED’s website.
