Libby Bligh is a consultant working on conflict, peace and security and humanitarian assistance. She also works across Itad’s evaluations on data for development.
Libby is particularly interested in the use of new technological data solutions to further development objectives and achieve and monitor the SDGs. She manages both an evaluation and a research study that look at the added value of geo-referenced infrastructure and population data in planning processes for health campaigns and in the post-intervention evaluation of outcomes in the mine action sector, respectively. She also manages a mixed-methods evaluation looking at the global partnership for sustainable development data, who bring together traditional and non-traditional data actors with the aim of strengthening the use of data in achieving and monitoring the SGDs.
In addition to the data for development work, Libby also manages and provides technical inputs into two of our humanitarian MEL contracts: the first focuses on building MEL capacity of smaller organisations in the humanitarian sector, whilst the other provides MRE services to the UK’s global mine action programme, covering 16 countries.
Libby has experience in the Middle East, Balkans, Caribbean and in East and North Africa. She has both a quantitative and qualitative background and a master’s in post-war recovery studies from the University of York.
