Applications are open for the USAID/BHA Humanitarian Shelter and Settlements Fellowship 2022. USAID/BHA seeks to motivate fellows to professionally engage in the humanitarian S&S sector by supporting the thesis or professional report writing efforts of three fellows during 2022.
USAID/BHA currently seeks to enhance its leadership efforts, improve its response programming in the humanitarian Shelter and Settlements (S&S) sector, increase the awareness of the sector in North America, and expand career options for those interested in S&S sector activities.
Also, the topic of this graduate student research would be focused on any of the following topics of interest:
Wider Impacts – Measuring the contribution of shelter and settlements assistance to wider humanitarian outcomes in conflict as well as disasters contexts
Long Term Recovery – Managing the transition of crisis-affected households to longer-term recovery in conflict and disasters contexts.
Housing, Land and Property (HLP) – Ways of navigating land and property rights, security of tenure, and administration issues to support households to secure their rights to use, occupy, own, rent, or transfer shelter in conflict and disasters contexts.
Space Standards – How to establish more contextualized measures of shelter density in settlements in conflict as well as disasters contexts.
Self-Recovery – How can markets support shelter self-recovery in conflict and disasters contexts.
Cash and Markets – How households effectively use cash to secure as well as support their shelter and settlements in conflict and disasters contexts.
Measures to increase “coverage”- the level of assistance in response to identified humanitarian shelter and settlements needs, or to more effectively use resources.
Also, Environment – Linking and incorporating climate change adaptation measures and hazard mitigation efforts into the settlement planning to promote disaster risk reduction.
Moreover, applications from women and minority candidates are strongly encouraged.
