Research Consultant [CLOSED]

[This position closed on 8 August 2019] GNDR is collaborating with Forus to recruit a Research Consultant

Project objective

The objective of this project is to research the role of civil society leaders in coordinating disaster risk reduction and post-emergency interventions.

Project context and justification

Forus is the only permanent network of development NGO platforms at national and regional levels, where Southern and Northern countries enjoy equal and democratic representation and equal influence in the working processes and governance. Forus works with a model of peer interaction.

Forus plays a crucial role in structuring and strengthening development NGO platforms and regional coalitions. It is also an advocacy organization that plays an active and meaningful role in governance and international negotiations, with its members and in partnership with other actors (Action 2015, Action for Sustainable Development, FAO, Agenda for Effectiveness Help, etc.). Forus' work is complementary to the work of other advocacy groups and networks, and thus facilitates dialogue between its members and other key development actors. In 2019, with the support of the Fondation de France, Forus begins a project to strengthen the capacities of national network heads of NGOs in crisis and post-emergency situations and in contexts of democratic urgency.

In this context, Forus is collaborating with the Global Network of Civil Society Organizations for Disaster Reduction (GNDR), which is the largest international network of civil society organizations working to build resilience and reduce disaster risk in communities around the world.
