Description

Its main purpose was to promote political leadership for global development. The global reach and the range of partnerships involved in the LEAP project enabled Oxfam to identify and demonstrate improvements in practice across six areas: How to influence policy Effective tactics The global balance in practice The role of Civil Society in global development policy Public support for global development issues How the project developed - identity, strategy and priorities The external and independent evaluation of the first three years of LEAP focussed on two main areas of work: Oxfam’s relative contributions to policy advocacy outcomes

  OXFAM AMERICA  Evaluation Report OXFAM’S GLOBAL LEADERS EMPOWERED TO ALLEVIATE POVERTY (LEAP) EVALUATION  –  FINAL REPORT  Author(s): Glenn O’ Neil (team leader), Jana Garay, Patricia Goldschmid, Laetitia Lienart, Laura Roper, George Ellis Ruano, Nirupama Sarma, Ana Paula Schaepers  Affiliation/Title: Owl RE Wise research and evaluation Date: February 2015    As part of our commitment to accountability and learning, Oxfam will share conclusions and recommendations from evaluations. Internally we will share with relevant stakeholders, ensuring that they have an opportunity to participate in discussion of those results in meaningful ways. We will also publish the evaluation reports on our website in accessible language. As a rights-based organization, accountability, particularly to the communities we seek to serve, is of the highest importance to us. For Oxfam, accountability requires Oxfam to regularly and honestly assess the quality of its work, share and learn from its findings with primary stakeholders, and apply that learning in future work. This is an evaluation of Oxfam America’s LEAP project. The program has been operating across 27 initiatives in numerous countries and this evaluation covers the work undertaken between 2011 and 2014. The major evaluation activities took place between June to October 2014. The evaluation was carried out by OwlRE through a competitive process and reflects the findings as reported by them as validated with stakeholders. The evaluation was managed and commissioned by Chris Stalker, Manager Monitoring Evaluation & Learning, Campaigns & Advocacy, Oxfam America.
