Gender Transformative and Responsible Agribusiness Investments in South East Asia (GRAISEA) is a regional programme funded by the Government of Sweden. Based on the recognition that financial viability and gender equitable and sustainable supply chains are not mutually exclusive, Oxfam and GRAISEA promotes win-win-win propositions: wins for communities, small-scale producers and larger businesses.

Since the inception of Oxfam's GRAISEA Programme at the beginning of 2015, pilots in shrimp aquaculture were launched in Indonesia and Vietnam. One element of these projects is to connect with ongoing efforts to develop more sustainable methods in shrimp aquaculture. Oxfam has advocated that the Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC), one of the certification initiatives and aquaculture improvement programmes, includes social aspects as standard.
