USAID/Nepal’s Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEL) Activity is a five-year project that provides performance management support to USAID/Nepal and all its Implementing Partners (IPs) in the form of planning and monitoring, evaluations and studies, and knowledge management. The project is responsible for providing M&E capacity building support to both USAID/Nepal and IP staff.
The USAID/Nepal’s Disaster Risk Reduction, Reconstruction and Resilience (DR4) office is intended to conduct Political Economy Analysis (PEA) to support the implementation of Disaster Risk Management (DRM) project. The PEA will examine current political dimensions of national and subnational DRM. By using recent legislation as an entry point, the PEA will explore the interaction of political and institutional factors that are at play in the reform process for the DRM sector as Nepal undertakes restructuring under the federalism process. The PEA will suggest ways in which USAID might support efforts by national and subnational governments to adopt multi-hazard approaches to DRM that address all aspects of the DRM cycle: mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery.

The consultant will be a key member of the PEA team who will be led by members of USAID/Washington and include participation from USAID/Nepal.
