Evaluation report

This report presents the findings of an effectiveness review carried out on Oxfam's response to the 2010/11 drought-related food crisis in Ethiopia that was undertake through the application of Oxfam's Humanitarian Indicator Tool. Overall the drought response partially met seven of the 12 standards. The report describes how all projects struggled to articulate Oxfam’s internal and external standards and to integrate practices that would benefit the affected communities beyond the immediate relief period. However, specific contextual challenges are identified and the report highlights the speed at which the programme responded to the needs of Somali refugees.
