The Australian Government, through Pacific Women, has committed approximately $1.4 million over 10 years (2012–2022) on initiatives supporting women and girl’s empowerment in FSM.
With a view to complement existing local activities that contribute to gender equality and women’s empowerment, the Country Plan provides expanded opportunities for women entrepreneurs and supports work that will improve support services to women who have experienced violence.
In addition to Pacific Women, DFAT makes an important contribution to gender equality in the Federated States of Micronesia through mainstreaming gender outcomes in the aid program, as well as through political, diplomatic and corporate activities.
