One person in three in the world lives in poverty. Oxfam is determined to change that world by mobilising the power of people against poverty. 
Around the globe, Oxfam works to find practical, innovative ways for people to lift themselves out of poverty and thrive. We save lives & help rebuild livelihoods when crisis strikes. And we campaign so that the voices of the poor influence the local and global decisions that affect them. 
In all we do, Oxfam works with partner organisations and alongside vulnerable women and men to end the injustice that cause poverty.


The dramatic rise of large scale aquaculture industries in Indonesia in the 1980s and 1990s and the resultant loss of mangrove ecosystems saw a massive shift in the capacity of coastal communities in South Sulawesi to maintain traditional livelihoods. As a result, poverty in these communities has increased steadily in the last decades with a disproportionate impact on women and women headed households. 
The official policy and legal frameworks of the government, as well as a lack of capacity of these communities to engage with governments, have also contributed to increased poverty. 
This project presents an opportunity to address many of these issues, through capacity building of civil society organizations and governments in Community Based Coastal Resource Management approaches and mangrove and other ecological restoration. This will support the creation of sustainable livelihoods and strengthen the capacity of communities to engage with their governments in the development of pro-poor and gender sensitive polices and programmes. Women will develop their leadership skills whilst working to secure their access to and control over productive resources.
