I closely coordinate with colleagues on timely collection of data, information and reports. I support internal committees in their work related to programme planning and review and ensure M&E planning and budgeting at the institutional level. I am also involved in reviewing ICIMOD’s agreements and contracts with partners from the M&E perspective to ensure that M&E requirements are fully covered and providing support to internal and external trainings and workshops to strengthen the capacity of partners and to share knowledge.
