The Resilience Knowledge Coalition aims to make Global South demand and expertise take centre stage in resilience programming and measurement. To meet this aim, the coalition has initiated a database of experts from the Global South or majority world. Through this, we envision that GRP Partners and other organisations would be able to consciously hire experts from the majority world and will not have to rely only on voices from the minority world or Global North.
To join the Global South Expert Pool, please sign up on the Resilience Platform and fill in your profile details here.
As a part of this activity, GRP will commission one or two experts from the majority world as consultants to conduct mapping exercises on resilience measurements. The call for consulting opportunities is as follows:
The calls for consultants is open until 15 April 2022.
The work is expected to commence in April 2022, with an inception report due by mid-May, data collected between July-August and final deliverables approved by October 2022.
The maximum proposed budget for each opportunity is USD 10,000. Consultants are free to submit a proposal to either one and/or both opportunities. The final budget will be based on a proposal containing a work plan specifying consultancy rates and number of days/hours allocated per activity. No operational and travel costs are foreseen.
Consultant(s) are asked to submit their CV along with a proposal in the link, to include outlines for methodology, process, experience and budget. The accepted proposal will then go through a process of finalisation and agreement of the methodology with the GRP team, resulting in an inception report after month two of contracting. The proposals will be assessed based on:
- University degree in a relevant field.
- Minimum of 5 years working experience in the field of international development.
- Consultancy experience with resilience measurement approaches and tools.
- Qualifications and experience of the consultants, especially showing a strong methodological understanding and experience with resilience measurements approaches and tools, including impact assessments.
- A strong track record with substantive experience of similar reviews.
- Excellent ability to express themselves in English, both orally and in writing.
- The consultant should be a national of a country eligible for Official Development Assistance as defined by the OECD-DAC.
- Consultants will need to have a registered business.
The lead contact for purposes will be Shuchi Vora (email@example.com).
