This solicitation is the first step in a two-part process. After reviewing concept notes, PRM will invite selected organizations to expand their submissions into full single-year (15-page) or two-year (20-page) proposals with objectives, indicators, and detailed budgets for each year of the program. Selected organizations will have 30 calendar days after they are notified of their selection to complete their full proposals. Concept notes must respond to one of the following research questions: Cash and Voucher Assistance (CVA) for Protection: How can CVA be formulated to be most impactful in achieving protection outcomes? When does cash for protection work, when should it be in place, and how is it best implemented to achieve intended outcomes? What are the longer-term impacts of CVA transfers for protection, and how does the duration of those transfers impact whether or not longer-term protection outcomes are achieved? Displaced Indigenous and/or Other Marginalized Populations in South America: What are the types of displacement challenges indigenous and/or binational/transfronterizo populations in South America face? To what extent do humanitarian assistance organizations account for the specific assistance and protection challenges facing displaced indigenous and/or marginalized populations? Research proposals may consider a comparative piece that involves at least two indigenous communities in South America. Concept notes must propose research relevant to specific PRM populations of concern. For the purposes of this call for concept notes, this includes refugees, internally displaced persons, stateless persons, conflict victims, and vulnerable migrants. PRM will not review proposals for domestic research on U.S.-based assistance activities. Concept notes should propose humanitarian research to be conducted overseas. Organizations may submit a maximum of two (2) concept notes, but only one (1) concept note per each of the topics listed.
