Deadline: 26 September 2016
The United Kingdom’s Department for International Development (DFID) is currently inviting applications for its programme titled- Migration and Refugee-Livelihoods Research in Ethiopia.
Research into current migration trends in Ethiopia indicates that there is considerable internal mobility between rural and urban areas and internationally. Irregular migration among Ethiopians is also reportedly significant although hard to substantiate with reliable data.
DFID Ethiopia will deliver a research project as part of a five-year programme from 2016 to 2020 that will:
- Investigate and articulate the ‘pull and push factors’ related to Ethiopian migration, and identify the key humanitarian concerns.
- Identify factors including market-opportunities, policy interventions and social frameworks that affect or could contribute to improved refugee household livelihoods practices and results among camps and for those living more directly within host communities, to inform proposed DFID programme interventions.
- Track and assess the impact of different interventions on migration patterns, sustainable refugee livelihoods and humanitarian indicators over the period of the programme. This includes comparing different contexts and factors that may contribute (including DFID’s proposed funding for refugee humanitarian assistance and service delivery and looking at other programmes and interventions active).
- Contribute to potential future programme design, changes in programme design and, policy development.
