Oxfam GB implemented the Livestock Fairs project in Zimbabwe's Midlands and Masvingo provinces from 2004 to 2007. Targeting chronically poor people (unconditional voucher) and transitorily poor people (voucher in return for community works), the project enabled men and women to engage in public works programmes identified by their communities. This final evaluation assesses effectiveness (targeting, the ability of livestock fairs to address the livelihoods needs of poor people, and the extent to which community participation has been promoted) as well as impact (benefits to recipients and sellers of livestock, and the sustainability of livestock fairs).
