This evaluation is presented as part of the Effectiveness Review Series 2013/14, selected for review under the livelihoods thematic area. This report documents the findings of a quasi-experimental evaluation carried out in February 2014 that sought to assess the impact of the activities of the project ‘Market Access and Food Security in the Central Region of Colombia’.

This project is part of an initiative supported by Oxfam since 2003 to increase market access and income among smallholder producers in the Central Region of Colombia. Oxfam has worked with the Comite de Interlocucion Campesino y Comunal (CICC), the Alianza Campseina y Comunal (AL CAMPO), the Instituto Latinamericano para una Sociedad y un Derecho Alternativos (ILSA) and the National University of Colombia to establish, support and document learning about alternative marketing channels – especially farmers’ markets (mercados campesinos) in the capital city of Bogota, and in other towns in the region.
