UNFPA Supplies is the only United Nations programme dedicated to family planning, and it is the world’s largest provider of donated contraceptives. I was happy to support the team again for a combination of writing and editing to showcase progress in the 2017 annual report, with a particular focus on strengthening supply chains to ensure availability of a choice of modern contraceptive methods.
An inter-agency gender assessment of the six refugee camps in Rwanda calls for action to improve gender equality across humanitarian operations. Editing included six camp reports about 45 pages each (Gihembe, Kigeme, Kiziba, Mahama, Mugombwa, Nyabiheke) plus this 108-page consolidated report.
This 132-page report is based on a survey of 1,000+ households and numerous interviews with inmates. It recommends a new agenda for public security and safer and more inclusive cities.
An enormous rush editing job — 150+ pages — on wonderful ways to build ecosystem resilience and reduce the vulnerability of communities: Making the Case for Ecosystem-based Adaptation: The Global Mountain EbA Programme in Nepal, Peru and Uganda.
I am providing fast-pasted editorial support for Latin America and the Caribbean — thus far a press release, emergency fund request and global funding appeal.
A new long-term agreement announces to UNFPA offices worldwide that my editorial services really are world class. This is another big win for Beyond Jargon LLC and UN contracts (with a longstanding, much-loved client in family planning and maternal health).
This is a fantastic endorsement and global exposure. I won a two-year contract that makes it easy for UNDP offices to work with me through my company, Beyond Jargon LLC. When I bid and win, documents will come to me on fascinating topics including democratic governance, environment and energy, HIV and poverty reduction. Stand by, team of copy editors. It’s going to be a busy Spring.
Meeting notes are refreshed for a Ministerial Forum and an annual meeting of donors and partners. Content culled from 18 country reports is repackaged as examples of advocacy in action.
