Short summary of Project
After the nation-wide floods of 2010 UNDP funded several dozen projects through out Pakistan in the areas of: (i) capacity building of local institutions; (ii) livelihood restoration of affected communities; and (iii) restoration of community infrastructure. The average project funding ranged from USD300 – 800K. Projects were implemented either through government departments or through local NGOs. In total about 100 projects were implemented through 50 NGO partners in four provinces, AJK and GB.The services provided by the firm included verification of project implementation, evaluation of the impact of the projects (where they were closed) and user beneficiary surveys. At the Assignment inception a complete list of projects including their nature and location was obtained. Using this information the firm developed monitoring framework, field check lists, field deployment plan and reporting standards. All this was agreed with the Client. Field teams were hired locally and were trained in Islamabad on the use of the monitoring instruments and reporting. Each project was reviewed in light of the documents provided by the Client as well as information received from the field. A brief project review report was shared with the Client after completion of each review. Monthly summary report covering all activities was developed for the Client and regular monthly meetings were held to ascertain progress of the Assignment.
