Joel Cutting

Principal Consultant

I joined IOD PARC in 2019 and am based in the Nepal Office as a Principal Consultant. As part of my role I have a Team Lead position for the DFID Nepal’s Resilience Portfolio Monitoring Evaluation and Learning Unit, generating and communicating evidence on how to build resilience to climate change and disasters in Nepal. My work supports practical and engaging approaches to intervention logic and theories of change, monitoring, and adaptive management linked to wider organisational learning, and I am interested in how learning can be shared and applied across institutional boundaries so that joint reflection and innovation can lead to improved results.

My background prior to being with IOD PARC has been as an Institutional Reform specialist, with over 20 years of experience in International Development, 18 of which have been in post conflict and fragile states. My expertise covers decentralisation, institutional and public sector reforms, governance and private sector development. I have worked across a range of sectors and with a variety of clients, with an emphasis on WASH, mining, and fisheries reforms, and have undertaken a number of evaluations and reviews of DFID, GiZ, World Bank and international NGO programmes. I hold an MSc in Development Management with Distinction from the University of Birmingham International Development Department.
