Oxfam in Myanmar and Solidarités International (OXSI) have been implementing the ‘Humanitarian WASH in Sittwe Township, Rakhine State’ (HARP2) project in the Sittwe camps since September 2017. The project, while focusing on provision of WASH services to the targeted communities, seeks to improve resilience of communities living in the camps through an integrated approach linking Water and Sanitation, Community Engagement, Accountability, Gender and protection mainstreaming and Emergency Preparedness.
The impact evaluation, for which fieldwork was carried out in December 2019 and January 2020, aimed to evaluate the impact of some of OXSI’s HARP2 project activities in building resilience among internally displaced people confined in the Sittwe camps in Rakhine State.
