Research and Monitoring & Evaluation with Learning (MEL) underpins effective project design with accountability. It enables innovative and responsive programming, and improves our understanding of what constitutes effective development.

To measure achievements, Oxfam applies a result-oriented framework that monitors the progress of the strategy in an in-depth and meaningful way and on an annual basis. The framework includes tailored indicators `to track the immediate and medium-term impacts.


Governance and Citizenship

Alongside local partners, Oxfam inputted the Cambodian perspective into a global research focusing on the shrinking civil society space’s phenomenon. That research provided the basis for a Mekong-wide learning event introducing on new strategies to strengthen the space for constructive civil society space.

Private Sector Engagement

Case studies and testimonies gathered by Oxfam and with the support from Community Legal Education Center helped Coca-Cola and PepsiCo realize the importance of committing to ZeroTolerance to Land Grabbing in their supply chains and the importance of securing ‘social license to operate’ their businesses.
