SARASOTA – Cory Lynch, 18, says people his age are “always complaining” about not knowing where the various parties are, who is going to the parties, or where to find another activity when a planned event goes out the window, which is often.

The fading glory of Burley: Once a staple cash crop, only a handful of tobacco

Except today, migrant workers have replaced the chattering barns of local, rural women and men folk who used to prepare the leaves after the tobacco was dried. “Americans don't work on “It beats the devil out of growing vegetables.” In a good year

Congratulations Team Fairfood!

On the 23rd of September, a team of 20 participants finished the full 10 miles at the Dam tot Damloop, the biggest running event in the Netherlands.

We would like to give a big thank you to our runners who collectively raised thousands of euros in donations. Thank you!

It was a memorable day with perfect weather for running. Thousands of enthusiastic spectators created a unique atmosphere along the track which started in the historical centre of Amsterdamand finished in the neighboring town of Zaandam.

With much anticipation, we are looking forward to running again next year.

For more photos of this event, check out our Facebook page; and for more information about the Dam tot Damloop, visit the Dam tot Damloop website.

Are you interested in running with us next year and/or fundraising for our causes? Send an email to marije.visee@fairfood.org and we’ll keep you updated on upcoming fundraising events.

Why did we run?

After the event, Fairfood International started tackling some of the issues that the poultry industry is facing, issues such as the abhorrent living conditions in which broiler chickens are subjected to, by talking to two of the world’s largest chicken producers. The demand for chicken meat is now so high that production companies pressure chicken farmers to ‘grow’ their chickens at a rate which has proved to be unsustainable. Almost all industrially raised chickens live in barren, overcrowded sheds, prime breeding grounds for disease and discontent. With the funds that our runners raised, we are advocating for a great improvement in animal welfare on chicken farms, to benefit chickens, farmers and consumers alike.

How Can a Post-2015 Agreement Drive Real Change?

The political economy of global commitments

Author: 

Duncan Green, Senior Strategic Advisor, Oxfam GB; Stephen Hale, Deputy Advocacy and Campaigns Director, Oxfam International; Matthew Lockwood, Climate Change Team Leader, Institute of Development Studies

What are the lessons of the Millennium Development Goals process? What has been their impact on aid and on decision making by national governments? 

This discussion paper seeks to inform the post-2015 debate by examining these questions. It argues that leverage over national governments and civil society involvement will increasingly eclipse leverage on aid as the determining factor of post-2015 success, and discusses how alternative international instruments can achieve such traction.

This paper is intended to provoke reflection and debate, and does not represent Oxfam policy positions. It is a working draft, and the authors welcome all comments and suggestions. To contribute, please email research@oxfam.org.uk or add your comment on Duncan Green’s From Poverty to Power blog.
