The primary objective of the collaborative research is to develop programming in transitional contexts which supports resilience and ‘connectedness’ between emergency and development approaches and interventions.
This work will include a study of approaches currently being used or proposed for supporting resilience and connectedness in transitions, and the development of an appropriate model for GIZ; and the establishment of a research study to investigate in practice how transitional programming influences resilience.
The outputs of the study will be:
- A concise review of approaches to resilience and connectedness, applied to transitions, with a proposal for a model to take forward. A paper will review current literature and interview key informants to analyse practice and thinking.
- A roundtable in Berlin to review and discuss approaches with GIZ.
- On-going technical support, including feedback on GIZ’s developing strategy for work in transitions.
- Supporting the development of an action-oriented research design to test the implementation of the transitional aid strategy.
