Email: advocacy@oxfaminternational.org

Our Washington campaign and advocacy office focuses on the International Financial Institutions, primarily the World Bank and International Monetary Fund. The key objective is getting these organizations to provide more and better financing to enable poor countries to reach the internationally-agreed Millennium Development Goals and overcome poverty, and to allow countries more space to decide their own development priorities.

The office works to persuade the World Bank to 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.

We also aim to promote more participatory, transparent and accountable decision-making, from the country level up to the Bank and Fund Boards. Recent work has focused on the role of economic policy conditions attached to the institutions' loans, for example.

Our work spans numerous policy areas including food security, climate change, development policy and finance, and the provision of humanitarian assistance to victims of conflicts and natural disasters.

The office has one member of staff dedicated to global humanitarian issues, in particular humanitarian system reform, disaster risk reduction, and global responses to specific humanitarian crises in which Oxfam is active on the ground. Other staff members carry out lobbying and alliance building work on food security and agriculture, access to medicines, and climate change.

In Addis Ababa Oxfam International has set up a Liaison Office with the African Union. Oxfam recognizes the African Union as a positive force for realizing social, economic, political and cultural rights of Africans. Over many years Oxfam has supported the emergence of strong civil society coalitions in Africa to engage and support the AU.

The purpose of the Liaison Office is to further that work, in particular around cooperation on issues relating to:

  • Achieving social and economic rights;
  • Fighting poverty and HIV/AIDS;
  • Promoting peace and security;
  • Supporting the AU projects in the areas of good governance and information technology;
  • Promoting gender equality and women’s empowerment in Africa;
  • Promoting economic policies and strategies for shared growth.
