Impact Talk from Oxfam Novib
Power of Citizens’ Voices Series: Demanding the Right to Food in Cambodia and Nigeria
This is the fourth and final episodes in the Power of Citizens’ Voices series, “Demanding the Right to Food in Cambodia and Nigeria.” In this series we talk with civil society leaders, activists and colleagues from around the world about how raising the voices of citizens drives impact on critical topics like conflict and security, the right to food, and securing the financing needed for development.
Governments around the world have committed to eradicating hunger by 2030, one of the seventeen Sustainable Development Goals. We have not made consistent progress towards achieving this goal in recent years. And this was even before the coronavirus pandemic, which could push as many as an estimated 121 million people back into hunger. Oxfam and partners have been challenging the injustices in the global food system. In this episode, we speak with Saratu Abiola (Advocacy Project Coordinator, Oxfam in Nigeria) and Asisah Man (Land Governance Coordinator, Oxfam in Cambodia) about protecting land rights and demanding fairer food systems and better agricultural policies in Cambodia and Nigeria.
