Leadership is clear and all decisions are guided by our purpose. We have improved results and increased the potential for synergies by innovating and by coordinating between organisational units, with our members, and through strategic partnerships.”

The implementation of pilot projects and prototypes to explore innovative work was included as part of the Civsam Programme application 2018 – 2022 Forum Syd. Working with diaspora groups in development cooperation is mentioned as one example of a thematic issue and a target group that would be relevant to explore further.

Within the Overall Plan for Operation 2018 – 2022 (2019) the following priority was set “LEARN FROM OUR INNOVATIVE WORK WITH MIGRATION AND DEVELOPMENT: We will evaluate and learn from our innovative work with migration and development in order to strategically improve our operations.” Thus, we will explore how to work with migration and development in LAC region; take into consideration the evaluations made to Forum Syd´s existing programmes that work with diaspora but also look into broader ways of working with the thematic area.

For those reasons, Hub LAC is now looking for a consultant to develop a study on how to work with migration and development in LAC Region. This consultant is located at Forum Syd's office in Bogotá, Colombia. The consultancy will start tentatively in the middle of September 2019, for three months.
