I have 18+ years experience in planning, managing, and analysing international aid, building on a 12-year background in national civil protection in Germany. I have
worked extensively at management level in civil protection, humanitarian response, and international cooperation. With substantial experience in strategic programme planning, programme reviews, and
evaluations, my professional focus is on M&E, aid systems, and Disaster Risk Reduction
Monitoring & Evaluation I am very experienced in M&E and have particular and unique experience in establishing and managing monitoring systems in hard-to-access areas. This makes Remote Monitoring a particular interest of mine. I help organizations with conceptualizing their monitoring needs, evaluating existing monitoring systems, and proposing improved and strengthened mechanisms.
Aid Systems Systems are at the core of effective aid delivery, and should be founded in evidence-based planning. I have in-depth experience in planning and managing for results in difficult environments, including remote management of aid. The principles of Results Based Management (RBM) guide my work. I am the co-owner of a professional group on LinkedIn on RBM. I work with organizations on strategic planning (country programs, program strategies), and review and evaluate their outcomes.
Disaster Risk Reduction I have worked with government and civil society to strengthen disaster preparedness, complementing my civil protection expertise. In the global drive for Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) I have a particular interest in holistic approaches that cut across sectors to strengthen people's resilience to shocks. I evaluate Disaster Risk Reduction and Civil Protection Programmes, review and strengthen program components related to DRR, and help organizations overcome sector boundaries in building resilience through their work.
