Claire Hutchings

Director of Monitoring, Evidence, and Learning


Prior to joining BRAC Ultra-Poor Graduation Initiative as the Director of Monitoring, Evidence, and Learning, Claire led Oxford Policy Management’s Monitoring, Evaluation, Research and Learning (MERL) Global Team for 3 years. While her team designed and delivered a diverse range of MEL and evaluation projects, Claire specialized in measurement of complex, hard to measure areas such as governance, resilience and empowerment. Claire was also program Director for the FCDO-funded ‘Strengthening Evidence use for Development Impact (SEDI) Programme’, a multi-million pound program working in partnership with governments to strengthen evidence informed policy-making. Before OPM, Claire worked for nearly 15 years with Oxfam Great Britain, most recently as Head of Program Quality where she was responsible for the leadership and development of Oxfam’s innovative Global Performance Framework, which supported the organization to measure and communicate the breadth and impact of its diverse global program portfolio.

Claire Hutchings has been involved in measurement, evaluation, and learning in international development for nearly 20 years, leading large global teams across the full program and policy cycle – from evidence informed program design, to monitoring and adaptive management, to research and learning, as well all types of evaluation. Claire has a Masters of Arts in Human Rights from the University of Sussex, a Post-Baccalaureate Diploma in Political Science from Simon Fraser University, and a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Victoria.
