Erin Klemm

Senior Consultant

I’m a senior consultant at IOD PARC working in the WASH+ programme support portfolio team. With 13 years of sustainable development and humanitarian experience, I’ve provided strategic, research and programmatic support to a range of international, environmental and academic institutions. My work has spanned across 11 countries in sub-Saharan Africa and Southeast Asia, including roles based in Kenya and Thailand.  A monitoring, evaluation and learning specialist, I’m particularly interested in the intersection of poverty reduction, environmental protection and climate change.  My thematic experience includes WASH, forestry and land use, food security and nutrition, and forced migration.

Before joining IOD PARC, I worked in programme and monitoring & evaluation management capacities at international NGOs including WaterAid, TREE AID and the Border Consortium, as well as international and environmental research development at the University of the West of England. I’ve supported a range of innovative WASH programmes aimed at delivering services, strengthening institutional and community capacities, influencing policy and practice, and producing ground-breaking research.  I hold a MSc in Development Studies from the School of Oriental and African Studies (University of London), including substantial training in qualitative and quantitative methodologies for research and evaluation. Recently, I completed a 3-week technical Carbon Forestry course at the University of Freiburg.
