I do short-term assignments in international development assistance.
My focus is on sustainability and equity, so that everybody in a community continues to benefit from services such as safe water and improved sanitation long after a development assistance program ends.
I work in all phases of the project cycle, from identification to evaluation. I work mostly in rural areas, small towns, and peri-urban areas.
For water and sanitation, I typically undertake the following types of assignments:
- Various tasks related to public-private partnerships to build and maintain infrastructure
- Reviews of sector strategies and policies
- Community consultations, beneficiary assessments, stakeholder analysis
- Research on specific topics
- Project and program reviews, evaluations, and end-of-project reports, particularly when
- beneficiary input is required
- impact on the poor is of concern
- project objectives include building the capacity of communities, private sector, and local governments to manage the infrastructure
- a large amount of material and data must be consolidated into a simple and clear narrative
In the water and sanitation sector, I also:
- develop and support knowledge-sharing through communities of practice
- advise on knowledge management systems
- develop capacity through using social networking tools
I have done similar work in other sectors, particularly for projects with a rural component.
