This evaluation is presented as part of the Effectiveness Review Series 2014/15, selected for review under the women’s empowerment thematic area. This report documents the findings of a quasi-experimental impact evaluation carried out in December 2014 that sought to assess the impact of the activities of the ‘Empowering Small Producers especially Women in the Dairy Sector’ project.

The project’s overall objective is to improve livelihoods opportunities, increasing income and employment, as well as improving women’s empowerment by improving their economic leadership in the dairy sector. The project activities were implemented by Oxfam GB in conjunction with Doaba Foundation, a local partner organisation. The review adopted a quasi-experimental impact evaluation design combined with a qualitative component. In order to measure women’s empowerment, this evaluation identified 18 indicators associated with empowerment in the dairy sector in South Punjab and employs a multidimensional measure aggregating them in one composite index.
