International Organization for Migration

IOM is looking for consultant(s) to develop, roll-out and pilot the Safe Migration Index (SMI), a shortcut to assessing resilience to human trafficking, by generating a single number score from weighting the risk factors (which contribute to vulnerability) and protective factors (which improve capabilities to avoid, cope with, or recover from harm).

In coordination with IOM and project’s partners, the consultant will:

 Conduct a desk review of IOM’s global toolkits, project documents and relevant literature on the migration profiles of the four target provinces and their vulnerabilities to human trafficking to identify a set of concrete risk and protective factors at individual, household/family and community levels relevant to the Vietnamese context

 Facilitate the validation of the factors through stakeholders’ consultation

 Based on the validated set of risk and protective factors and using IOM’s global toolkits, develop a questionnaire to gather the information needed to assess the impact of such factors on an individual’s vulnerability

 Develop a formula/equation to calculate the individual SMI score in line with the questionnaire

 Develop a formula/equation to calculate the community‐level SMI score, either by using the individual SMI scores or creating separate dimension indices (with reference to the Human Development Index)

 Facilitate the pilot testing of the questionnaire and formula/equation and make relevant adjustments

 Using the finalized tools, conduct a baseline study in the four target provinces

 Based on the desk review and baseline SMI scores, produce:

o One analysis report to identify notable patterns and distinct differences among the four target provinces as well as key risk and protective factors of each province, and to provide recommendations for interventions based on the analysis

o Four one‐page migration profiles of the four target provinces
