The regional humanitarian project aims to enhance OGB and partners capacities to identify and respond to humanitarian crises in a timely, proportionate and appropriate manner. It further aims at promoting best practice in preparedness, response and donor ship of programmes throughout the wider humanitarian community. A regional humanitarian programme review was undertaken in the Oxfam GB (OGB) West Africa Regional Management Centre (WARMC) from 5 October to 2 November 2007. The review was undertaken as part of an ongoing effort to improve programme quality thorough regular cycles of reviews and feeding into the next phase of strategy development. The aim of this evaluation was to improve the effectiveness and coherence of regional humanitarian work in West Africa.
