PSA are currently working with IOD PARC in a large contract-winning international consortium for the British Government Department for International Development (DFID) to build resilience to natural disasters and climate change in Nepal.
A nation that has been hit hard by recent natural disasters, Nepal holds a special place in the heart of PSA Managing Director, Paul Steinfort, who was among the first post-disaster experts on the ground after the devastating 2015 earthquake.
To support the work of the Government of Nepal, the civil society DFID Nepal is taking forward two major new programs: “Climate Smart Development for Nepal‟ and “Strengthening Disaster Resilience in Nepal.”
To enable DFID Nepal, with its partners, to focus on learning and evidence PSA Project has been contracted with the IOD PARC-led consortium to head up the Portfolio Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEL) Unit.
The key function of the unit will be to review and synthesise portfolio, program and project monitoring, as well as to evaluate and conduct analysis in order to help DFID Nepal flexibly manage the programs This ensures strong Value for Money (VfM). The unit will also generate evidence through evaluations of DFID Nepal’s disaster resilience and climate smart development programs, sharing findings and facilitating learning with a range of audiences.
