Dear Gareth,

For the next meeting in May 19, I would like to prose a presentation from Oxfam in either external speakers or internal presentation. I would like this chance to introduce about Oxfam’s experience and plan on gender transformative and responsible Agribusiness investment in Vietnam and in the region. We are developing specific work plan for Gender Transformative and Responsible Agribusiness Investment in South East Asia (GRAISEA) in 6 countries (Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines, Myanmar, Cambodia) with three objectives: i) policy advocacy (at national/ASEAN level) for gender-sensitive CSR practices; ii) gender transformative in several value chain (shrimp/fisheries/palm oil) in Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia; iii) influencing Agribusiness private sector to responsibly invest for the best interest of small scale producers and its female workers by complying with international standards (market oriented). This program also linked with several regional partners in CSR and social enterprise (CSR Asia, Shujox, Change Fusion, ..)

As I mentioned before, I would like to integrate this program to our group work plan in three years. Our group can be very effective platform for influencing both government and business sector that also fit our group strategies and objectives. The presentation could be presented by Oxfam’s Program Management Unit and Oxfam in Vietnam

I am looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Thanks and best regards

Thanks Ms Nga from Care for the link re: The Responsible Business Forum on Food and Agriculture in Hanoi on 23/06/2015 and 24/06/2015


As Mike from The Asia Foundation pointed out there is another CSR related event The Disaster Preparedness Forum also happening in Hanoi on 2/07/2015


The folks over CSR Asia are looking to invite some smaller, more local/national companies to the event that may have experience of partnering with NGOs in either disaster preparedness and/or response. Ly from Plan said it best “the more local companies get exposed to this topic, the better engagement between NGO and private sector could be fostered” and the forum seems like a great opportunity for that.  If you have companies in mind please contact Mark Leighton via email mark at helikonia.com.my<mailto:mark at helikonia.com.my>

And lastly enjoy the holiday!
