This document reviews a sample of evaluations carried out between January 2013 and October 2014; it is an exercise required by Oxfam’s Policy of Program Evaluation. The findings tell us about the nature of Oxfam’s programming, helping identify strengths and weaknesses, and lessons, from our programs; the report includes remarks on our evaluation quality. The review is motivated by a desire to learn, so it inevitably focuses more on what needs improvement or requires action. This report aimed to serve internal program audiences; in keeping with its commitment to accountability, Oxfam is now sharing it with the public.
