Through Pacific Women, the Australian Government will spend up to $1.8 million over three years (2015–2018) on initiatives supporting women’s empowerment in Tuvalu.
The first Tuvalu Country Plan was developed through a comprehensive literature review and an in-country design mission that included consultations with a wide range of stakeholders representing government, local leaders, NGOs, churches, the private sector and through direct discussion with women, youth and people with disabilities.
Activities to be implemented in the first Country Plan will:
- Strengthen women’s organisations, groups and coalitions for change
- Reduce violence against women and expand support services
- Improve women’s leadership and decision-making opportunities
- Increase economic opportunities for women
- Enhance government capacity for gender and social inclusion mainstreaming
- Enhance the evidence base to inform policy and practice.
