In support of the CAMRIS-implemented, USAID/Nepal Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning (MEL) Activity, we seek a Team Lead for the upcoming baseline assessment of the Integrated Watershed Management Activity (IWMA). The two-year IWMA in Nepal has an overall goal of improving water security, access, and equity of use through integration of USAID activities. IWMA requires four key deliverables: 1) Integration Plans for Lower Karnali and Rangun Khola Watershed; 2) MEL Plan for each watershed; 3) Organization and facilitation of quarterly planning/review sessions; and 4) Semi-annual and annual progress reports.
The purpose of this baseline assessment is to understand how a mechanism designed to support ongoing USAID/Nepal activities in targeted geographical areas helps improve coordination and integration with those other activities and how it contributes to improving water security and watershed management. As part of the baseline assessment, MEL also may be requested to oversee collection of data for individual indicators. The indicators required to be collected by MEL remain under discussion as of this posting.
