Oxfam America

For A Project To Make Public Finances More Accountable To Poor Communities In Developing Countries

This grant would support the first three years of Oxfam America’s new six-year program. Concentrating their effort in a set of target countries, Oxfam America will undertake policy research and advocacy to improve the quality of U.S. foreign assistance, ensure that extractive industry deals are more transparent and accountable to community priorities, and build the capacity of civil society partners to hold their governments accountable in making development expenditures that benefit the poor. Oxfam America works closely with the other Oxfam affiliates, partnering with Oxfam Australia to strengthen the network’s expertise in extractive industries, and testing their new model of strengthening local partners to oversee their governments’ spending.
