This new guide by Oxfam is about inequality in all its forms. It contains practical advice on how to find and use reliable data on inequality in advocacy and campaigning, of use to both professionals and concerned citizens who want to have a stronger and shared understanding of the most important drivers of inequality.
In response to the global inequality crisis, Oxfam launched Even it Up, its biggest-ever worldwide campaign. Oxfam also undertook a global online conversation between programme staff and partners about inequality - Oxfam Reflects on Inequality - in 2014.
This process encouraged reflection on the drivers of inequality and how Oxfam should tackle them. Embedding inequality within Oxfam's country strategies and programme design is a core part of Oxfam’s initiative to address the global inequality crisis. While most country programmes are already tackling inequalities, programming could be scaled up and connections between programme and the Even It Up campaign strengthened.
This guide has been developed to support Oxfam country programmes as they redouble efforts to tackle the severe inequalities that are holding back progress in developing countries. The guide was built in response to requests from staff in the Horn of East and Central Africa Region (HECA) who wanted to have a stronger and shared understanding of the most important drivers of inequality, and what Oxfam partners and allies might do to tackle those inequalities through more effective programming.
