We are looking for a team to undertake a Gap Analysis that will help identify the evidence gaps, priorities, and opportunities for innovation and research to enable the inclusion of older people and people with disabilities in humanitarian response.
The selected candidate will produce a highly engaging, accessible and adaptable Gap Analysis report, and will deliver an effective approach to dissemination and uptake of the findings.
This deliverable will help identify high priority ‘problem statements’, clear opportunities for innovation and research, and inform and engage the sector around the inclusion of people with disabilities and older people in humanitarian response.
Our strategy includes a commitment to the inclusion of marginalised and excluded population groups within humanitarian response. As part of this commitment, we have developed a new focus area on Disability and Older Age Inclusion (DOAI), guided by a dedicated Technical Working Group (TWG) to provide expert steer and support uptake and adoption of good practice based on what works.
Our new DOAI focus area will explore the barriers to and support opportunities for the inclusion of older people and people with disabilities in humanitarian response. We believe humanitarian innovation has much to contribute to this agenda and to generating a more effective and inclusive humanitarian response.
We are commissioning this Gap Analysis to be a foundational tool that will guide our future funding and activities through our programmes, and bring value to our Technical Working Groups and the wider humanitarian sector as a stand-alone resource. The findings of the Gap Analysis will directly contribute to the focus and approach of our 2020 Innovation Challenges and beyond; and the deliverables should be appropriate in both timing and content to support that.
The aim of the Gap Analysis is:
To help identify the evidence gaps, priorities and opportunities for innovation and research to enable the inclusion of older people and people with disabilities in humanitarian response.
Through an approach that:
