Dự án này được thực hiện bởi liên minh ba tổ chức phi chính phủ quốc tế – CARE, Oxfam, và SNV với sự hỗ trợ của chính phủ Australia. Dự án WEAVE hướng tới việc nâng cao vị thế của phụ nữ trong phát triển kinh tế và xã hội trong các chuỗi giá trị nông nghiệp ở nông thôn Việt Nam thông qua thúc đẩy bình đẳng giới tạo ra các thay đổi ở nhiều cấp độ – cấp hộ gia đình, cấp cộng đồng với các nhóm sản xuất hoạt động hiệu quả hơn, đồng thời góp phần cải thiện môi trường chính sách ở cấp vùng miền và cấp quốc gia.

Đối tượng hưởng lợi trực tiếp của dự án WEAVE là khoảng 1.800 phụ nữ và nam giới ở hai tỉnh Lào Cai và Bắc Cạn. Nhiều người trong số họ thuộc các nhóm dân tộc thiểu số và là nông dân nuôi, trồng hoặc tham gia vào các chuỗi giá trị lợn, quế và chuối.  Đồng thời, WEAVE sẽ gián tiếp mang lại lợi ích cho các doanh nghiệp địa phương, các chủ thể tham gia vào chuỗi giá trị (ngoài những chủ thể mà dự án hướng tới) và người tiêu dùng.

Four quick ways to drastically improve the World Bank’s social and environmental protection policies

August 1st, 2016 by Posted in Newsroom/ Lastest | No Comments »

This post was written by Nadia Daar, Head of Oxfam International’s Washington Office.

Last week, the World Bank released the latest draft of their Environmental and Social Framework. Colloquially known as “the safeguards”, these policies are meant to protect people and the environment from any damaging impacts from the Bank’s projects.

However, we found the draft sorely disappointing. The Board of Directors will make a final decision about whether or not to approve the safeguards on August 4. We’re urging Bank officials to make four simple fixes that would drastically improve these policies.

We have a new website!

Tax havens ‘serve no useful economic purpose’: 300 economists tell world leaders

May 9th, 2016 by Posted in Quản trị tốt/ Good Governance | No Comments »

Experts including Thomas Piketty, Jeff Sachs, Nora Lustig and Angus Deaton call for more tax transparency

More than 300 leading economists from 30 countries have today written to world leaders warning that there is no economic justification for allowing tax havens to continue, and urging them to bring an end to offshore financial secrecy. The letter comes ahead of the UK Government’s summit on offshore corruption in London on Thursday, which politicians from 40 countries as well as World Bank and IMF representatives are expected to attend.

Signatories include Thomas Piketty, author of best-selling ‘Capital in the Twenty-First Century’; Angus Deaton, the current Nobel Prize-winner for Economics and Nora Lustig, professor of Latin American Economics at Tulane University, as well as influential experts with experience of advising governments and policymakers, such as Jeff Sachs, director of Columbia University’s Earth Institute and an adviser to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, and Olivier Blanchard, former IMF chief economist.

Professors from the world’s top universities such as Harvard, Oxford and the Sorbonne and from countries as diverse as Finland and Cameroon have united to warn global leaders that tax havens undermine countries’ ability to collect taxes, with poor countries proportionally the biggest losers. Despite having different views on desirable levels of taxation, they all agree that “territories allowing assets to be hidden in shell companies or which encourage profits to be booked by companies that do no business there are distorting the working of the global economy.”

NEW ZEALAND EMBASSY ANNOUNCES USD$50,000 OF HUMANITARIAN AID TO BEN TRE

April 28th, 2016 by Posted in Cứu trợ/ Humanitarian | No Comments »

Ha Noi, 28 April 2016 – Today the New Zealand Embassy announced humanitarian aid, totalling US$50,000, to communities in Ben Tre Province affected by drought and saltwater intrusion.

The assistance will be provided through an ongoing US$4.0 million New Zealand government funded project in the province, Building resilience to disaster and climate risks of men and women in Ben Tre Province, implemented by Oxfam in Vietnam. The emergency relief responds to urgent needs of children, women, and men in 15 most affected communes in Binh Dai, Ba Tri, and Thanh Phu districts.

Up to 6,000 cow and goat farmers in these three districts will receive cash grants, to buy food and water supplies for their animals, which they are dependent on for their livelihoods.

New Zealand Ambassador to Vietnam, H.E Haike Manning, said: “We recognise the serious impact that the drought and saltwater intrusion is having on communities in southern and central provinces of Viet Nam.  This assistance is a modest, but practical contribution to the communities we are already working with through our existing project, and is an example of New Zealand’s ongoing commitment to supporting vulnerable communities across Vietnam.”

“New Zealand will continue sharing its experience and working closely with our partners, such as Oxfam, to assist local communities to deal with drought and saltwater intrusion and the effects of climate change in the Mekong Delta region.”

In addition, Oxfam is working in collaboration with the local government in Ben Tre Province to provide safe drinking water to more than 6,000 women and men.

“The drought and saltwater intrusion has made hundreds of thousands of families more serious, while most of them are already living under poverty line”, said Oxfam Country Director Babeth Lefur, “Oxfam commits to implement this emergency response at the highest responsibility and efficiency”.

About Ben Tre’s drought and saltwater intrusion:

Nine out of thirteen Mekong Delta provinces are facing one of the worst droughts the region has seen in ninety years. Trigged by El Nino, the drought is having significant impact by limiting agricultural production, straining livelihoods, and exacerbating food insecurity among poor and vulnerable communities in the region. 164 communes in Ben Tre province have been in the historical effected list. Ben Tre was among the first provinces declaring drought and saltwater intrusion disaster status and requesting support from the central government.
