Lucy has more than 15-years’ experience delivering programme management and technical advice to civil society organisations and academia. She worked for four years with World Education in the Asia & Pacific region, providing technical support on microfinance and livelihoods programming before taking on a more wide-ranging programme management advisory role supporting various international social development/education NGOs across Australasia to design and implement programme management systems and processes. For nine years she acted as a Board member for a Cambodian NGO, Children for Better Future, which provides educational services to vulnerable children in Phnom Penh, supporting the charity’s growth from volunteer organisation to registered charity.
Back in the UK, she has increasingly focused on monitoring, evaluation and learning (MEL) aspects of international development programming. Working with VSO, Oxfam, WWF and Comic Relief, she has commissioned and delivered evaluations and learning studies; advised on the design of MEL systems and frameworks, including theory of change, logical frameworks, collective learning approaches/mechanisms; and facilitated workshops and training on theory of change, MEL frameworks and programme evaluations. Recently, Lucy’s work with INTRAC has concentrated on different aspects of the design and review of MEL systems and frameworks with Newcastle University, Article 19 and Westminster Foundation for Democracy and support in delivering evaluations with WHO, Sabin Vaccine Institute and BBC Media Action.
