II. Organizational Context and Background Information

The International Organization for Migration (IOM) is the UN migration agency with 169 member states and committed to the principle of humane and orderly migration that benefits all. IOM works to promote sound migration management, to facilitate international cooperation on migration issues, to search for practical solutions to migration challenges, and to provide humanitarian assistance to migrants in need including refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs). The International Organization for Migration Special Liaison Office (IOM/SLO) Addis Ababa supports the Government of Ethiopia (GoE), humanitarian partners and national and international organizations to protect and assist vulnerable migrants, individuals and communities affected by crises in Ethiopia. One of the thematic areas of focus is preparation for and response to disasters through the emergency and post-crisis spectrum. IOM works in collaboration with the National Disaster Risk Management Commission (NDRMC), UN Agencies, donors and Civil Society Organizations (CSO) in an effort to provide life-saving emergency assistance to crisis-affected population, to enhance coordination mechanisms, to improve information management for evidence-based planning and response, and to support efforts to progressively resolve displacement situations. IOM’s activities are guided by humanitarian and development principles, relevant national and international instruments and coordination mechanisms as well as IOM’s own polices.

III. Justification/Rationale of the Consultancy

IOM is implementing a project titled “*Technical Assistance to the Government of Ethiopia on progressive resolution of the Displacement Situations of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Ethiopia”* in cooperation with the GoE (Government of Ethiopia) and with a financial support from the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC). This project aims to contribute to the well-being of IDPs by enhancing information management system; strengthening coordination mechanisms on durable solution at regional and national levels; and facilitating the development of a national framework to promote durable solution policies and programmes.

Guiding IOM’s approach to durable solutions, in 2016, IOM adopted an institutional framework, the “Progressive Resolution to Displacement Situations (PRDS) Framework”, which is in line with relevant international instruments. This project will draw upon the PRDS framework, resources and tools to support the Ethiopian federal and regional Governments, UNCT (United Nations Country Team) as well as humanitarian and development partners to support progress towards resolving internal displacement in Ethiopia. In 2017, IOM supported the Somali Regional authorities to develop a durable solutions strategy and associated action plan.

In response to requests from regional authorities, IOM plans to scale up and strengthen efforts towards the achievement of durable solutions by replicating the successful regional durable solutions mechanism in the Somali Regional State in other disaster-affected regions. To support this objective, the Emergency and Post Crisis (EPC) Unit in IOM SLO (Special Liaison Office) Addis Ababa is seeking an experienced international consultant with proven expertise in providing technical advice to, and facilitating, State-led durable solutions policy and strategy development. This consultancy requires strong analytical skills, knowledge of humanitarian and development architecture as well as relevant global, regional and national instruments and approaches[1]. Focus is placed on the humanitarian-development nexus as this relates to progressing towards resolving internal displacement in Ethiopia.

[1] Including New Way of Working (NWOW), Grand Bargain, New York Deceleration on refugees and migrants, Agenda for Humanity, Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, UN Guiding Principles on Internal Displacement, IASC Framework on Durable Solution and the UN Secretary General’s decisions on durable solutions, amongst others.
