The North Uganda Emergency Programme aims to save lives and protect livelihoods of people affected by conflict and natural disasters. The Kitgum programme has been running since 1997 providing water, sanitation, public health promotion and livelihoods support to 150,000 people displaced by conflict into IDP camps in Kitgum and Pader districts. Due to the insecure environment and risk of LRA attacks, access to the camps for project staff became increasingly difficult. Between 2003 and 2005, no staff travelled to the camps. In response to this, a remote implementation and remote monitoring system was established, based on a ‘cascade system’ of paid and unpaid members of the affected community and their ability to travel to Kitgum town for meetings with Oxfam staff. Other independent monitors such as Church of Uganda staff and older women from the church were employed to give a more ‘independent’ view and to verify information from other sources. This mid-term evaluation of the remote monitoring aims to cover the years 2003 to March 2006, when access to the camps was regained.
