This report presents the findings of an effectiveness review carried out on Oxfam’s response to the 2011/2012 food insecurity response in Chad that was undertaken through the application of Oxfam’s Humanitarian Indicator Tool.

Overall the response scored 64% and met or almost met eight of the 12 standards. This is marginally above the 60% cut-off point. Considerable efforts were made to ensure that the number of beneficiaries increased as the situation deteriorated, enabling the response to provide assistance to over 250,000 people. Throughout, the programme demonstrated a high degree of attention to conflict sensitivity and ensured that women’s rights were systematically included in all projects and activities. However, the programme under-utilized Sphere as a point of reference for technical quality, falling short of meeting Sphere standards, particularly in water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH).
