Deadline Extended till 13 November 2016

Priority Areas (Not Limited)
- Displacement caused by natural disasters (floods, typhoons, etc.)
- Displacement caused by slow onset impacts (droughts, sea level rise, salinisation of soil, etc.)
- Displacement programmes/projects that relate to climate change (implementation of market-based mechanisms programmes such as REDD+, fossil fuel exploitation projects such as coal mining, fracking, etc.)

- Work directly with the local grassroots women in the community level; either the young researcher or the mentor must come from the community in which the research takes place
- Committed to conducing the 1.5-year-Feminist Participatory Action Research (FPAR) process between January 2017 and June 2018
- Committed to feminist participatory methodologies that increase democratic participation and leadership of marginalised women in the research
- Can provide the appointed researcher with internet and computer access for regular online communication with APWLD secretariat and online training
