This accountability review is presented as part of the Effectiveness Review Series 2014/15. The report documents the findings from a review carried out in December 2014 which examines the degree to which Oxfam meets its own standards for accountability.
The project works to ensure equitable and sustainable use of natural resources in 4 provinces in Cambodia – Kampong Thom, Preah Vihear, Kratie and Stung Treng. The project aims to (i) enhance capacities and platforms for engaging with state agencies at sub-national level on the governance of land and natural resources and (ii) to build capacity and establish platforms for civil society, rights holders and, at state level, to advocate for equitable management of land and natural resources.
This assignment examined accountability to partners and communities in terms of transparency, feedback/listening and, participation – three key dimensions of Accountability for Oxfam. In addition it asked questions around partnership practices, staff attitudes, and satisfaction (how useful the project is to people and how wisely the money on this project has been spent) where appropriate.
