Oxfam’s Emergency Response to the Food Crisis in West Africa had two phases. The first phase was designed to save lives, delivering emergency food aid as fast as possible. The second phase began the process of restoring people’s livelihood assets (animal restocking), drought mitigation (water management) and contingency planning for the next lean period through cash transfer programmes. This final evaluation analyses the achievements of one of Oxfam’s largest humanitarian responses in recent years in West Africa, with a total spend of 6.3 million GBP, and reaching more than 350,000 men, women and children. The report highlights lessons learnt and identified best practices across the programme, which were shared and discussed with staff and partners.
