Oxfam’s Gender Transformative and Responsible Agribusiness Investments in South East Asia (GRAISEA) is a regional programme which is funded by the Government of Sweden.
Based on the recognition that financial viability and gender equitable and sustainable supply chains are not mutually exclusive, GRAISEA promotes win-win-win propositions: wins for communities, small-scale producers and larger businesses.
GRAISEA focuses on three intertwined approaches:
- Promote corporate social responsibility and other private sector regulatory frameworks in South-East Asia with ASEAN and its member states and with leading agribusiness companies
- Demonstrate gender transformative and responsible agribusiness investments for smallholders, in particular women in the selected value chains of palm oil and aquaculture
- Promote responsible and innovative investments in small and medium enterprises
It is a joint Oxfam Great Britain and Oxfam Novib programme led by the OGB regional centre in Bangkok, which will involve five regional partners (ChangeFusion, CSR Asia, Institute for Social Entrepreneurship in Asia [ISEA], Shujog/Impact Investment Exchange IIX and Oxfam's East Asia GROW campaign) and six countries (Cambodia, Indonesia, Myanmar, Philippines, Vietnam and Thailand). The Oxfam offices in these countries work with local country partners.
