Our strong local presence in Pakistan ensures we can continue to support our clients in the current security environment.
With more than 20 years’ experience in Pakistan, OPM has a deep understanding of the country’s socio-economic challenges and political dynamics. The creation of OPM Islamabad in 2009, our first permanent international office, has not only strengthened our local knowledge and insights but also ensured we can continue to support our clients in the current security environment.

Staffed entirely by Pakistani nationals, OPM Islamabad has demonstrated its ability to carry out a wide variety of projects across the country, supported by a network of OPM consultants, and local and international partners. Projects have ranged from the SNG Programme, which aims to improve the delivery of public services in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP), through to developing a mid-term budgetary framework for the Ministry of Finance, as well as evaluating the processes for flood-relief cash transfers.

These initiatives build on earlier pioneering work by OPM in Pakistan, including our integrated household survey (1995-2003) and our evaluation of the Lady Health Worker programme (1999-2002).

Assisted by OPM's international network of consultants and associates, OPM Islamabad offers solutions to a broad range of issues, with a particularly strong track record in the following fields:

• Public financial management, and governance reform
• Qualitative and quantitative national surveys
• Social protection
• Health
• Education
• Poverty and microfinance
• Monitoring and evaluation
• Security Risk Assessment

Clients who have turned to us for solutions in Pakistan have ranged from the Governments of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Punjab, Federal and Provincial ministries of finance and health, NADRA, Benazir Income Support Program (BISP), to the Aga Khan Development Foundation, DFID, Save the Children, KfW, UNICEF, European Union, and the World Bank.
