Abstract

The project Ishtirak, located in the oum Hadjer sub prefecture of the Botha, began in June 1987, financed and executed by Oxfam in collaboration with Secours Catholique et Developpement (SECADEV) and with the technical collaboration of the Ministry of Livestock. The project has made substantial progress in the period since the last evaluation in 1989, despite delays in implementation resulting from insecurity in the region. In particular, the changes in approach to credit provision have resulted in a more rapid reimbursement of credit in the period 1990-1992 and a more solid foundation of group activity. The staff of the Ishtirak project have undertaken the project's management with a high degree of commitment and with a degree of flexibility which has allowed it to modify the project design. Most rapid progress has been made when the project has responded to the problems by developing local solutions which are appropriate to the needs of the groups with whom they are working, rather than working to a blueprint project design or procedure. The continuity of advice from Oxfam, in particular from the Pastoral adviser is seen as important for the future work of the project. The role of the pastoral adviser is a critical link between projects involving livestock components and the wider policy environment.
