Short-Term Consultancy in Demographic Impact

Posted: 4/18/2017 (Employment)

The Global Practice for Social, Urban, Rural and Resilience (GP SURR) is examining ways in which demographic factors impact the existing work of the GP and where they should be taken more clearly into account to strengthen the developmental impact of the GP’s work, particularly within its investment projects. The GP intends to carry out a review of its existing and pipeline projects with the aim to identify the opportunities for paying closer attention to demographic trends and processes. To this end, GP SURR is offering a Short Term Consultancy (STC) to an experienced demographer to undertake a review of its relevant operations and provide suggestions on how demographic issues are likely to shape GP SURR’s medium term agenda. The consultant will have a minimum of 15 years of relevant work experience in this field and work closely with the GP management and other World Bank staff on this activity. The outputs will include: (a) PowerPoint presentation summarizing the; and (b) short report of the findings of the assessment with practical recommendations. The review will take place from April 2017-June 2017.

If interested, please contact Gayatri Singh (gsingh9@worldbank.org) and Maitreyi B Das (mdas@worldbank.org) with your CV. We will be happy to set up a meeting to provide a more detailed scope of work after an initial review of the CVs.
