This report summarizes an internal review of Women’s Economic Leadership (WEL) programming in Asia. The review was conducted by an internal MEL advisor in 2013–2014 and drew upon project documentation, evaluation reports, site visits and staff and partner interviews to reflect how WEL programming was being implemented by Oxfam and its partners. The report gathers and consolidates evidence of good practice, based on what Oxfam project teams and partners have learned through recent experience and evaluation. The report builds on existing conceptual maps for WEL, and proposes a new conceptual framework to underpin WEL work in Asia. The research focuses on detailed case studies from projects in the Philippines and Sri Lanka, and takes in evidence from Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia, and Pakistan.
