Owning the outcomes

Over the past six years, the International Finance Corporation has channelled over $50bn to the financial sector. However, the evidence continues to grow that this private sector arm of the World Bank Group has little control over how a great deal of this money is spent.

Accountability and ownership

As the world marks a year since the signing of the Sustainable Development Agenda, Oxfam has outlined a new vision for the role of development aid. This report sets out how more effective aid can support both people and governments.

The weak link

Extractive industries present potentially large opportunities for developing countries. Oxfam has produced a detailed study of the political economy of decision making, with research conducted in Peru, Ghana, Senegal and Tanzania.

"Oxfam by Oxfam" tells the story of the organization through the lens of the people who are part of it. The content was filmed by people around the world, ranging from those working in Oxfam offices and those on the ground, as well as partners and beneficiaries.
