Evaluation of the Extractive Industries Program in Cambodia 2009-2012
A report outlining the findings from the external evaluation of the Extractive Industries Program in Cambodia.
The Oxfam America Extractive Industries Program in Cambodia reflects a deeply ambitious, complex and challenging response to the many issues arising from the emergence of an extractive industries (EI) sector in Cambodia. This evaluation assessed the program progress to date through assessment of achievements against a number of benchmark outcomes related to the longer term goals set by the Program until beyond 2020. The evaluation process also presented an opportunity for contemplation of the vastly changed EI context that the program now operates within, and the impact that this has had and is having on the implementation approach and theory of change.
Overall, the evaluation captured important program learning regarding past and current performance and the changed operating context, while also documenting and exploring new and emerging issues. The evaluation helps guide and inform the program’s strategy for the coming three year period.
