The Australian Government, through Pacific Women, has committed approximately $3.9 million over 10 years (2012–2022) on initiatives to support women’s empowerment in the Cook Islands.
Australia provides aid to the Cook Islands through a delegated arrangement with New Zealand, aligned with the development priorities identified in the Joint Commitment for Development between New Zealand and Cook Islands. Australia’s assistance to the Cook Islands focuses on increasing access to clean water and support for education and gender.
The Cook Islands also receives support from Pacific Women through regional and multi-country activities that include the Cook Islands.
