Nerea S.

United States


I’m a development professional with eight years’ experience in coordination and results-based planning, monitoring and evaluation. In my current position in the Office of the Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs, I am responsible for providing substantive support to the planning, management and reporting of voluntary contributions from Member States to support the work of the Department of Political Affairs in the areas of conflict prevention, preventive diplomacy, mediation, peacemaking and electoral assistance. In my previous capacity I was in charge of designing and managing complex multi-country evaluations of regional and global programmes in the Least Developed Countries. I managed large evaluations of the flagship programmes of the UN Capital Development Fund in partnership with other UN Agencies and a broad range of donors. These evaluations took place in challenging conflict and post-conflict countries in Africa (Francophone and Anglophone) and involved the management of large and experienced evaluation teams that I accompanied during the field mission. I complement this exposure to corporate strategic planning and assessment with extensive field experience in inter-agency planning and coordination in the Philippines UN Development Programme (UNDP). During three years I led the Management Support Unit under the supervision of UNDP Country Director, and was responsible for monitoring and reporting of a $22 million portfolio of projects. In addition, I have worked in Nicaragua with grassroots organizations implementing child protection development projects. I combine technical and managerial skills with a deeply engrained results-focus lens that is part of my professional discipline. I am capable of working with efficiency, accuracy and attention to detail in a Spanish, English or French-speaking environment.
