This project falls under Oxfam Novib#s Strategic Partnership with the Dutch government and more specifically the Theory of Change for Right to Food, aiming to achieve impact for women, men and children living in poverty to realise their right to food. This project sits within a wider program that contains more projects that Oxfam Novib is engaged in. These include the Oxfam Global Land Program, which consists of work in some 40 countries, as well as projects on water governance; climate resilient livelihoods; socially andenvironmentally responsible agribusiness and value chains; and women#s economic empowerment in agriculture. The goal of this project is that small-scale producers and agricultural workers, particularly women and their communities, benefit from local to global public and private sector policies that protect and promote their prosperity and resilience. The project focuses on: - Building the capacity of CSOs to influence key public and private sector stakeholders.
