GLOBAL KNOWLEDGE PARTNERHIP ON MIGRATION AND DEVELOPMENT (KNOMAD)
 
Call for Papers

Vulnerability and Resilience in Explaining Environmental Change, Migration and Development
                                                                     
 
Background
 
Experts generally agree that environmental change is but one of the many reasons that prompt people to migrate, sometimes operating on its own but more often through other mechanisms. Individuals, households and communities facing similar environmental changes may respond differently to these processes. It is believed that the specific impacts of environmental change, and the extent to which they lead to migration, displacement and/or relocation, are mediated by the level of vulnerability and resilience found in those affected by these processes.[1] Understanding why people faced with similar macro-level factors move or stay is important. A better understanding of the impact of vulnerability and resilience to environmental changes may help policymakers and practitioners assess the degree to which people need to move, what forms of movement are likely, and their ability to avoid harm in the presence or absence of mobility.
 
Call for Proposals
 
The Thematic Working Group (TWG) on Environmental Change and Migration, on behalf of the Global Knowledge Partnership on Migration and Development (KNOMAD), plans to commission one or more papers that elucidate the relationship between individual, household and community-level vulnerability and resilience, on the one hand, and migration in the context of environmental change on the other. The papers will be distributed widely, including for circulation at upcoming events, such as the International Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction in Sendai, the Conference of Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, and the Global Forum on Migration and Development.
 
We are seeking proposals for preparation of papers that address one or more of the following issues:
 
• A critical review of the literature on individual, household and community vulnerability and resilience to environmental change and resulting migration patterns;
• Analysis of the impact of vulnerability and resilience to environmental change as a driver of migration in one or more geographic regions (based on already collected empirical data);
• Analysis of the impact of vulnerability and resilience on the efficacy of migration as a strategy for adaptation to environmental change in one or more geographic regions (based on already collected empirical data);
• Analysis of the impact of vulnerability and resilience to environmental change as a driver of migration in the context of acute events, such as cyclones and floods (based on already collected empirical data);
• Analysis of the impact of vulnerability and resilience on the efficacy of migration as a strategy for adaptation to environmental change in the context of acute events, such as cyclones and floods (based on already collected empirical data);
• Analysis of the impact of vulnerability and resilience to environmental change as a driver of migration in the context of slow onset processes, such as rising sea levels and more frequent and prolonged drought (based on already collected empirical data); and
• Analysis of the impact of vulnerability and resilience on the efficacy of migration as a strategy for adaptation to environmental change in the context of slow onset processes, such as rising sea levels and more frequent and prolonged drought (based on already collected empirical data).
• Analysis of the impact of vulnerability and resilience, including mechanisms for conflict resolution, in reducing the risk of violence resulting from environmental change and its links to migration, displacement and planned relocation.
 
Completed papers should be between 7,500-10,000 words including an Executive Summary and Bibliography. The paper should be in English, using language that is accessible to policymakers and practitioners as well as researchers.
 
Proposal Format and Timelines
 
Proposals should be no more than four pages, single spaced. They should provide a brief summary of the paper to be produced under the consultancy, an outline of the paper’s contents and a short bibliography. The proposal must also indicate that the consultant will be able to meet the TWG’s deadlines for these papers:

Draft paper: February 15, 2015
Final paper: March 10, 2015 

Please note that the consultancy will not support new research. As stated above, proposed analyses should be based on already collected empirical data. 
 
Honoraria
 
An honorarium of US$2,500 will be offered to those invited to prepare papers.
 
Please submit proposals no later than December 15, 2014 to:

________________________________________
[1]In its 2014 report, the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) defines vulnerability as the “the propensity or predisposition to be adversely affected. Vulnerability encompasses a variety of concepts and elements including sensitivity or susceptibility to harm and lack of capacity to cope and adapt” and resilience as “the capacity of social, economic, and environmental systems to cope with a hazardous event or trend or disturbance, responding or reorganizing in ways that maintain their essential function, identity, and structure, while also maintaining the capacity for adaptation, learning, and transformation.”
