Evaluation objectives
The evaluation aims to provide Oxfam and our local partners, DGD, key local and national authorities and other stakeholders in the intervention countries with an assessment of the results generated by the programme. The evaluation will focus on a set of criteria which are deemed most relevant for a multi-partner programme addressing needs resulting from active conflicts in 6 different countries. These are taken from the Oxfam Humanitarian Indicator Tool (HIT) which incorporate DAC criteria and add others.
Overall, through this evaluation, Oxfam aims at:
  • Evaluating the relevance, effectiveness and efficiency of the project and/or its implementation process, as well as the sustainability of the approaches used;
  • Identifying the achievements and shortcomings in the implementation of the project and the corrective measures to be taken for future opportunities / analyse the strengths and weaknesses of the project;
  • Providing stakeholders with recommendations that may be used to adjust the objectives and ways of working of the next phase (and other programmes);
    Fostering knowledge-building and sharing, and mutual learning among the different stakeholders of the programme.
The specific objectives of the evaluation include:
  1. Assess the Extent of Identification and Mitigation of Primary Protection Risks Across Six Countries: This objective aims to gauge the degree to which communities in the six target countries have identified and effectively addressed their primary protection risks.
  2. Measure Empowerment Across Gender and Age Groups: This objective seeks to quantify the empowerment levels of women, men, girls, and boys in assuming proactive roles in their own protection within their respective communities.
  3. Analyze the Impact of Community-Based Solutions on Peace and Social Cohesion: This objective entails an examination of the influence of community-driven solutions on the promotion of peace and the enhancement of social cohesion.

  7. Analyze Alignment with Broader Advocacy Efforts: This objective will scrutinize the alignment of the humanitarian response with Oxfam's overarching advocacy endeavors aimed at addressing root vulnerabilities, such as conflict, inequality, poverty, and the climate crisis.
  8. Evaluate the Strengthening of the Humanitarian-Development Advocacy Nexus: This objective involves assessing the extent to which the intervention reinforces the connection between immediate humanitarian assistance and long-term development and advocacy objectives.
