Marzia Faraz serves as a Program Cycle Mechanism (PCM) Specialist embedded in USAID’s Center for Conflict and Violence Prevention and provides technical assistance to the Center in establishing a robust conflict-sensitive MEL system to allow for evidence-based learning, and reporting. Marzia also supports the Center’s efforts in developing conflict-sensitive MEL tools and guidelines and works with the Center’s MEL specialist and subject matter experts to build and strengthen measurement strategies for their respective sectors. She has more than nine years of experience in monitoring, evaluation, and learning (MEL), strategic planning, and program design in the international development, specifically in the democracy, rights, and governance (DRG), sector.

Prior to joining EI, Marzia worked with the National Democratic Institute (NDI) as a Design, Monitoring, Evaluation & Learning (DMEL) Manager where she collaborated closely with NDI staff and partners during all stages of program cycle: including designing projects using innovative tools and approaches; conducting needs and baseline assessments; developing results-oriented metrics and analytical tools; establishing systems and processes for collecting, analyzing, and reporting on project outcomes; designing and implementing evaluations, and providing on-going training and individualized technical assistance. At NDI, Marzia also spearheaded the Institute’s efforts in designing and operationalizing inclusive and conflict-sensitive MEL tools and guidelines.

Marzia is a data, evidence, and feedback enthusiast and believes that having information is essential to learning about what is and isn’t working, making improvements, and creating an evidence-based picture of the difference we make.
