Oxfam GB's Global Performance Framework is part of the organization's effort to better understand and communicate its effectiveness, as well as to enhance learning for staff and partners. Under this Framework, a small number of completed or mature projects are selected at random each year for an evaluation of their impact; this exercise is known as an 'Effectiveness Review'. One key focus is on the extent to which the projects have promoted change in relation to relevant Oxfam GB global outcome indicators. The global outcome indicator for the livelihoods thematic area is defined as 'total household consumption per adult equivalent per day'. This indicator is explained in more detail in section 5 of this report.Niger's 'Community-Based Integrated Water Resource Management' project was one of those selected for an Effectiveness Review in the 2016/17 financial year. The project activities were implemented by Oxfam GB in conjunction with the partner organization Karkara and the Department of Agriculture of the Republic of Niger. The project was started in April 2013 and was completed in March 2015. It was evaluated one year after closure.
The protracted conflict in the Lake Chad Basin has cut off millions of women and men from their livelihoods, making them dependent on humanitarian assistance to survive. Much emphasis has been given to the stabilization agenda, with a focus on securitization. However, Oxfam's research in late 2017 showed that early recovery and livelihoods development are much needed and should be prioritized to promote resilience among crisis-affected communities, to reduce dependency on humanitarian aid, and ultimately to promote sustainable peace.

The second edition of Social Accountability Guidebook for CSOs is a learning resource that is intended to support the building of a community of practice of social accountability practitioners, advocates, and champions in West Africa. This guidebook is an updated version of the first edition which was published in 2018. The Guidebook presents case studies of social accountability initiatives from the West African region, interspersed with definitions of terminologies related to the concept. It is intended to deepen understanding and foster appreciation of the concept of social accountability, its potential for strengthening accountability in the region, and the challenges that may be encountered in implementing social accountability initiatives in the West African Context. It is hoped that the Guidebook will serve as a catalyst for further development and tailoring of the concept of social accountability in West Africa, by CSOs, development practitioners, local and central government agencies, the donor community, and all others who are interested in advancing accountability in West Africa.
La présente étude sur la gestion de l'hygiène menstruelle (GHM) examine et analyse les comportements et les pratiques en matière de gestion de l'hygiène menstruelle et leur impact sur les conditions de vie des femmes et des filles sédentaires et nomades au Niger. L'étude été réalisée dans quatre régions du Niger: Maradi, Zinder, Tahoua, et Tillabéri. Elle s'inscrit dans le cadre du programme conjoint du Conseil de concertation pour l'approvisionnement en eau et l'assainissement WSSCC et d'ONU Femmes « Genre, Hygiène et Assainissement » mené en Afrique de l'ouest et du centre.
This study examines and analyses behaviours and practices for the management of menstrual hygiene and their impact on the living conditions of sedentary and nomadic women and girls in Niger. The study was carried out in the regions of Maradi, Zinder, Tahoua and Tillabéri under the Joint Programme on Gender, Hygiene and Sanitation in West and Central Africa and implemented by WSSCC and UN Women. The findings of the study reveal various shortcomings, especially in rural areas and, more specifically, among nomadic populations. It highlights that women and girls can fully participate in society and the economy and lead active lives in school, work and leisure if they are better informed. The study also recommends that MHM needs to be clearly articulated in public policies and national strategies with associated budgets and monitoring systems.
Almost seven years of violent conflict in the Lake Chad Basin region of West Africa - involving Boko Haram and military operations to counter them - has led to a devastating humanitarian crisis. Originating in northeast Nigeria, the conflict has now spread across borders into Niger, Chad and Cameroon.The people of the Lake Chad Basin region are some of the poorest in the world. Even under normal circumstances they suffer from high levels of hunger and malnutrition. Over the last two years, the conflict has led to mass forced displacements and population movements, uprooting people from their homes and cutting them off from their livelihoods and sources of income, exacerbating an already dire situation.This report uses the Emergency Market Mapping Analysis (EMMA) methodology combined with protection risk analysis to capture aspects of the situation in the Diffa region of Niger and to offer a view of how vulnerable populations are accessing income and the risks associated with that.

The cost of doing nothing is, quite clearly, bad business. The Sunken Billions, published in 2008 and written by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization and the World Bank, demonstrated the difference between what is made and what could be made if fisheries were better managed is conservatively estimated to be $50 billion per year. Clearly, fisheries are a dramatically underperforming asset. WWF's Living Planet Report 2012 estimated that continuing "Business as Usual" will require two planets by 2030 to meet our annual demands. A key challenge in moving the world economy to a sustainable path, however, is finding ways to achieve sustainability that are socially, economically, and politically viable -- a problem that is particularly acute in marine fisheries. This 2012 fact sheet from WWF, provides information regarding WWF's Financial Institution or the Recovery of Marine Ecosystems (FIRME) initiative which employs an investment model that finances conservation without adversely impacting livelihoods.

The financing of the health system is a crucial factor that determines the state of health and well-being of the population. In Niger, as in many poor countries, spending is still too weak to ensure equitable access to services and essential health interventions. The reduction or absence of public resources subsidy of health services and health care pricing have created a dysfunctional public health care institutions with a negative impact on the ability of households to cope with the burdens of the disease.To identify the health funding problem, Niger through the Ministry of Health developed this document. The development of the funding strategy was done in three phases.A phase of collecting information in the field;A Development of the first draft phase;And a validation phase of the document in national workshop.
This evaluation is presented as part of the Effectiveness Review Series 2013/14, selected for review under the resilience thematic area. This report documents the findings of a quasi-experimental evaluation carried out in March 2014 that sought to assess the impact of the activities of the project 'Improving Livelihoods through Integrated Water Resource Management in Niger'.The project was carried out by Oxfam together with Karkara, a Nigerien non-governmental organisation, between 2008 and 2013, with the aim of enabling participants to strengthen their livelihoods and to minimize risk from shocks and adapt to emerging trends and uncertainty.For more information, the data for this effectiveness review is available through the UK Data Service.

On 25 March senior aid officials will meet in Paris to take decisions that will dramatically affect the lives of millions of children around the world in countries like Niger. The government of Niger is committed to tackling the education crisis in a country where 1.3 million children have never been to school. But rich countries have so far failed to deliver on their promised increase in financial support to Niger and the other countries that have qualified for the Education For All Fast Track Initiative. A failure by donors to act decisively now will be a disaster for Niger and for efforts to meet the Millennium Development Goal of universal primary education by 2015.
From June to October 2006, Oxfam GB implemented a Cash For Work project in 48 villages in the communes of Bermo and Gadabeji, Dakoro department, Niger. The project supported 2,000 vulnerable households to improve their access to food during the lean season. In compensation of community activities realised in their village, beneficiary households received a regular provision of cash. This final rapid evaluation presents key findings and is not an exhaustive review. It aims to provide Oxfam GB with good quality information regarding the project implementation process and its impacts.
