Project Description

Most assistance programs fall short of assessing the impact of projects implemented concepts such as impact, return on investment and ripple effect can be estimated but not fully calculated. The Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI) is developing an index based on six indicators that need to be operatized as new grants are designed and implemented. The intern will work with MEPI's program team and the Management and Evaluation (M&E) team to develop guidelines for designing and monitoring projects in ways that captures information in a manner that allows estimating impact.

Ideal candidates should have knowledge of monitoring and evaluation, organizational management, business planning or economics. Ability to conduct research independently is a must.
