The GROW campaign is aiming for a future where everyone has enough to eat, always, and is focussing on key issues associated with food – climate change, production, food prices, trade, etc. The campaign is being run globally by Oxfam and seeks to build and assist the large amount of advocacy that has been done to date around food.
