TNGO Presents: Dr. Maliha Khan
100 Eggers Hall
A system for measuring impact across CARE USA: potential rewards as well as risks There is an increasing need for TNGOs to respond to the pressures to demonstrate their accountability, legitimacy and effectiveness. CARE needs to maximize the impact and quality of its own programs and measure and demonstrate the impact of its work. Currently CARE is undertaking a process to measure its impact and improve knowledge management and accountability. Dr. Khan is the ‘architect’ of this process. What are the challenges in putting such a system place and where is CARE in the process? What have we leant in the last 3 years of doing this? What changes need to happen in how we do development if a process like this is to be realized? What are the rewards if we can pull this off? What are the risks if we fail? Dr. Maliha Khan is a development practitioner in the fields of project and program design, monitoring and evaluation, impact measurement and gender with 20 years of international experience. Prior to joining CARE she was an Associate Professor and the Chair of the Sustainable Development degree at World learning’s SIT Graduate Institute. She has also taught at the Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) in her native Pakistan, and held other visiting faculty positions Over the years Dr. Khan also has worked as a consultant for a range of clients in the fields of natural resource management and gender, including the Ford Foundation, Heifer International, the World Bank, UNEP, the government of Pakistan as well as many bi-lateral agencies. She has a Masters in Social Anthropology from Quaid-i-Azam University and a doctorate from the State University of New York, where she specialized in Development Anthropology. Lunch will be provided.
