Introduction and background

Danish Refugee Council (DRC) is an international non-governmental organisation, which promotes and supports durable solutions to the problems faced by refugees and internally displaced people all over the world. Danish Demining Group (DDG) is the Safer Communities unit within the Danish Refugee Council. The DDG mission is to improve safety, strengthen community resilience, and build local capacities to reduce and remove weapons-related risks, and factors that may result in use of weapons.

As DRC Tunisia is looking to expand the current programme, DRC seeks an external consultant (individual) to carry out an urban programming assessment of Tunis incl. to identify needs of vulnerable individuals in the urban environment of Tunis, main international and local actors involved in mixed migration response in Tunis, legal framework, and services provided, while main focus will be identifying key vulnerabilities and gaps in service provision. This will subsequently inform DRC urban programming in Tunis.

Socio-economic situation:

 Overview of best practices in DRC’s urban programming in other regions
