An evaluation of Oxfam Novib's engagement in RSPO and 4C

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional

Abstract

Lack and failure of governance regimes to address issues of sustainability have prompted Oxfam Novib to actively engage in various multi-stakeholder initiatives. Very often, market or self-regulation has failed to take into account long-term and distant effects of international trade and markets; in many countries, regulation by the national government has a limited scope and is poorly implemented; finally, individual civil society organizations are often not accepted, well-positioned or powerful enough to make – let alone: implement or impose – new rules. To seek solutions for governance failure and to contribute to the Oxfam International (OI) goals of economic justice and participation in economic decision-making, Oxfam Novib considers advocacy in and of Multi-Stakeholder Initiatives (MSIs) of strategic importance. The two Multi-Stakeholder Initiatives in which Oxfam Novib has invested a relatively large amount of time are the Round Table on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) and the Common Code for the Coffee Community (4C). This evaluation focuses on the engagement of Oxfam Novib these two MSIs.
