Turkey and Syria earthquake: evidence-based innovations and guidance for acute crisis response.

We are Elrha, a force for change in the humanitarian community. The research and innovation we support equips the humanitarian community with the knowledge of what works, so people affected by crises get the right help when they need it most.
Our purpose is clear: to empower the humanitarian community to improve humanitarian response. We make this happen by supporting and championing the outcomes of robust research and proven innovations.
We empower the humanitarian community. Find out how we can support you...


The food insecurity crisis in Eastern Africa could affect up to 50 million people this year, and is driven by many factors – with the climate crisis, armed conflict (both localised and the war in Ukraine), global economic contractures and the ongoing impacts of Covid-19 all contributing.  

Unfortunately, the drivers of this crisis are not likely to improve in the short term, and the cyclical nature of the climate crisis in particular is likely to result in further food insecurity emergencies affecting the health, wellbeing and futures of people in the years to come.  It is essential for humanitarian and research communities to work together to identify system level solutions to prevent households and communities from falling into crisis, to avoid the long-term impacts of food insecurity.   

We are seeking proposals for the development of  a “Multi-Sectoral Prevention Package Development for Food Insecure Contexts”.


This study will launch our multi-year programme of work on prevention of food insecurity and malnutrition tailored for children under age 5 and pregnant and lactating women. We anticipate working with a wide network of food insecurity, nutrition, health, livelihoods, WASH and social protection actors to develop what we’re terming “prevention packages” – which will be integrated bundles of evidenced interventions that can be deployed in humanitarian contexts in anticipation of future episodes of food insecurity.

To ensure that the packages are feasible, realistic and appropriate for the wide variety of contexts where food insecurity is prevalent, we are seeking to commission a research team, comprising a mix of expertise, to undertake the first phase of this work.

More information on the activities and timeline can be found within the full Request for Proposal document. 


Please review the full Request for Proposal (RFP) documents (and applicable annexes) below before submitting proposals.  

The application deadlines is 12:00pm GMT 23 January 2023.

We will not be able to consider incomplete applications or applications submitted after the deadline. 

More information on the background, objectives and deliverables of each consultancy can be found in the RFP documents below. 

Submit applications: FAO Gillian McKay to r2hc@elrha.org
