About Oxfam

Oxfam is an international development and emergency aid organisation, part of a confederation of 21 Oxfams, that brings together millions of people around the world fighting for a just world. They do so together with local partners in 86 countries and with over 65 years of experience. Ultimately, Oxfam stands for an inclusive world, calls for fair climate policies, contributes to a safe world and fights for equality.

Oxfam has five focus areas in their fight for equality: food, land and water; governance and financial flows; gender justice; conflict and fragility; and humanitarian response. More specifically on conflict and fragility, conflict obstructs development and is a key driver of humanitarian need. That is why Oxfam Novib aims to address the root causes of conflict, so that people find peaceful solutions and can transform their lives. On humanitarian response, Oxfam works in a context of increasing numbers of protracted crises. Many countries are immersed in conflicts and the frequency, scale and magnitude of humanitarian emergencies have increased.
