Delivery Experience

Mariam has worked on three global and regional partnerships at DA across various sectors including health, education and the environment. She developed recommendations for a global health partnership to strengthen their ways of working and implement a results-based governance structure. She also supported a global partnership to provide global public goods (including learning material and a digital learning platform) to improve countries' delivery of Foundational Literacy and Numeracy (FLN) interventions, and worked closely with the lead ministry on climate change and the Global Plastics Action Partnership (GPAP) to establish a National Plastics Action Partnership (NPAP) in Pakistan. 

She is currently working on the Lives and Livelihood Fund project to strengthen adaptive results-based management for key projects the fund supports.

Other Experience

Previously, Mariam supported service delivery in the Government of Punjab. As part of a World Bank education sector project, she led capacity-building interventions on data literacy for education officials in the School Education Department of Punjab. She underscored the need for a programme to help district-level education officials better understand and utilise data to make decisions, and guided the development and implementation of a project to meet this need.

In this same role, she supported interventions to provide widespread access to pre-primary education in public schools, and led a team in conducting a qualitative review to understand implementation gaps in the Early Childhood Education (ECE) programme.

At the Chief Minister’s Office, she strengthened service delivery in the waste management sector to create cleaner cities and rural spaces in Punjab, resulting in an 11% increase in waste collected in major cities and a provincial one-time cleaning campaign across rural Punjab.

Mariam also worked for a market researcher in Washington, DC, where she conducted qualitative and quantitative surveys to help Fortune 100 companies and trade associations understand and enhance their legislative footprint and value for policymakers.
