Charlotte Maugham

Senior Consultant, Communications & Knowledge Management

Specialist in strategic communications and knowledge management to facilitate learning for change and improve development outcomes of donor-funded programmes.

Charlotte specialises in strategic communications and knowledge management to facilitate learning for change and improve development outcomes of donor-funded programmes. She is currently deputy learning lead on the Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning programme for the UK Government’s International Climate Fund, and leads on communications and research uptake across a number of development programmes and evaluations for DFID and World Bank.

Charlotte has worked in Nepal, East Timor, Sudan and the Caribbean and has a particular interest in projects that focus on rights of women and girls. In this capacity, she is currently leading on communications and knowledge brokering for the evaluation of DFID’s End-FGM/C programme in Sudan and the evaluation of DFID’s Access to Justice for Women and Girls programme in South Sudan.

“Put simply, I believe that dedicating resources to strategic communications makes development programmes more effective. Whether it’s through giving a voice to marginalised people and with it the chance to take ownership of their own development; or through sharing emerging knowledge of what’s working, what’s not and why in any particular intervention. Better communication means better development outcomes and, ultimately, better opportunities and quality of life for the world’s poorest people.”
