Project Description

After the nation-wide floods of 2010 UNDP funded several dozen projects throughout 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 104 projects were implemented through 74 NGO partners in four provinces, AJK and GB.

Services provided by APEX

The services provided by the firm included verification of project implementation, evaluation of the impact of the projects (where they were closed).  At the Assignment inception a complete list of 104 projects including their nature and location was obtained.  Using this information the firm developed monitoring framework, field monitoring 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.  A comprehensive report on monitoring of 104 projects was shared with the Client.
