Evaluation of OGB and HR Cash Consortium in Southern Somalia
In response to the humanitarian emergency of 2006 in southern Somalia, a consortium of five agencies – Oxfam GB, Horn Relief, AFREC, WASDA and Development Concern – implemented the Emergency Drought Response Action (EDRA) programme. This was a cash-based intervention using an innovative approach with communities previously developed and implemented by Horn Relief in the more secure north of the country. It also involved a cross-border dimension with Oxfam GB working through two Kenyan-Somali NGO partners.
This evaluation aims at reviewing the rationale, strengths and weaknesses of this work by focusing on four related aspects: the Consortium, the approach, implications of using cash, and the micro-projects undertaken.
