Washington DC Office
Oxfam International’s International Financial Institutions advocacy office in Washington D.C (focused primarily on the World Bank and International Monetary Fund) works to influence key decision-makers to ensure that these organizations provide more and better financing and advice to help poor countries to overcome poverty.
The office works to persuade the World Bank to be more poverty focused, aim to fight inequality, ensure universal access to essential services (particularly health and education); to fight effectively against climate change; and to ensure that there is better investment in agriculture in developing countries and better policies on land.
We also aim to promote more participatory, transparent and accountable decision-making, from the country level up to the Bank and Fund Boards.
The IFI office works together with Oxfam’s seventeen affiliates around the world. We also join forces with allied NGOs and civil society organizations.
