This report presents the findings and lessons learnt from a review of the first phase of the Pacific Women Shaping Pacific Development (Pacific Women) Fiji Country Plan, and associated management response.
Pacific Women is a 10 year, $320 million commitment by the Australian Government to 14 Pacific Island Forum member countries to advance gender equality and the empowerment of women in the region. Pacific Women seeks to contribute to change in the interconnected areas of women’s economic empowerment (WEE), women’s leadership and decision-making (WLDM), ending violence against women (EVAW) and enhancing agency.
In Fiji, Pacific Women will invest approximately $26 million over ten years on activities that support women’s empowerment. The first phase of the Fiji program (2013–2016) represented an investment of approximately $4 million.
