Service Description

I am extremely conscientious, reliable and quick - and I'm also a good listener, highly detail orientated and will tailor the needs of each job to suit the client. I always work to the highest possible standards.

I offer editing services (copy and content editing, proofreading and rewriting) as well as research analysis and writing content. I am also happy to help with academic course work and theses. With my colleagues at ID Project Solutions I also offer servies in: contextual analysis, research, project design and report writing - in areas such as poverty, governance, sustainable livelihoods, environment, clean energy, climate change, health, education, information management, organisational learning, GIS, mapping, community development, urban planning, master planning, and the role of tourism in fostering economic development.

We also deliver practical support and guidance on managing information and evidence in projects through the use of cost effective GIS/information management tools and techniques. Areas include managing information and evidence for needs assessment, funding bids, targeting initiatives, monitoring and evaluation, and impact assessment.
