Baseline Study of FAIR for ALL Project (m/f)

Oxfam

Oxfam is recruiting for a Baseline Study of FAIR for ALL Project (m/f), to be based in Mocuba, Gurue and Alto Molocue, Mozambique.
Description
  • The FAIR for ALL consortium – comprising Oxfam Novib, Huairou Commission, SOMO and Third World Network-Africa (TWN-Africa) and other developing countries will support people in their collaboration with, and rightful demands towards companies, governments and multilateral organizations for economic, social and environmental justice, promoting global trade and value-chains that are FAIR for ALL
  • Thus, the strategic objective of FAIR for ALL is a strengthened Civil Society which is capable of creating space and mobilizing people across geographies to demand and contribute to more inclusive and sustainable trade and value-chains that respect human rights, protect the environment and promote women’s economic empowerment. This implies rebalancing developing countries’ reliance on dominant primary-commodity value chains, reforming tax and trade regimes and increasing investment in local and national value chains that benefit small-scale farmers, workers and artisanal miners; in particular women and their communities. The strategic objective will be accomplished via the following four pathways:
  • Pathway 1 strengthens civil society to co-create alternative business practices which share value more equally and empower women
  • Pathway 2 strengthens Civil Society to advocate for a more responsible private and financial sector that upholds land rights, decent work, living wages, women’s and environmental rights and space for civil society to act
  • Pathway 3 strengthens civil society to advocate for more accountable governments, multilateral institutions and regulatory frameworks – that is, for governments to effectively regulate the private sector
  • Pathway 4 strengthens civil society to mobilize citizens for fiscal and trade reforms that enable domestic resource mobilization for increased social spending and investment in locally owned and diversified economies that produce jobs and income for local communities
Mozambique FAIR for ALL project
  • The Mozambique FAIR for ALL program, which will be implemented by partners of Oxfam in Mozambique and SOMO, has four focus areas:
  • Support the development of and promote alternatives to current business practices, and partnerships among value-chain actors based on viable business proposals

Nature and purpose of the study
  • The baseline intends to assess the conditions and understand the context prevalent in Mozambique before start the program so that progress made throughout the project with respect to its targeted outcomes could be reliably measured. This is intended to develop measurable indicators and their present status, which enables generating evidence of changes and the impact as per agreed objectives and expected outcome.
