Social Protection Specialist for World Bank in Timor-Leste,
East Asia and Pacific
Pamela Dale is a Dili-based Social Protection Specialist for the World Bank. She works closely with Timor-Leste's Ministry of Social Solidarity on the Social Protection Administration Project, an effort to improve the implementation of core cash transfer programs efficiently, reliably and transparently through standardized information management and strengthened implementation and management capacity. She is also providing policy advice to the Ministry of Social Solidarity based on analysis of the implementation and impact of key social protection programs sub-nationally. Dale is also leading the development of the World Bank's new Country Partnership Strategy for Timor-Leste.
Between 2006 and 2011, Dale worked with the World Bank's Justice for the Poor program. In this role, she examined how local rule systems and values impacted the "development in practice", and provided advice and assistance to government and development partners in designing context-appropriate development projects. Before joining the Bank, she held various positions including as a Legislative Assistant in the U.S. Senate and a consultant for the International Rescue Committee.
Dale holds a Master in Public Policy from Harvard University's Kennedy School.
