Through Pacific Women, the Australian Government will spend $1.4 million over 10 years (2012–2022) on initiatives supporting women and girl’s empowerment in the Federated States of Micronesia.
Country Plans are the mechanism through which Pacific Women outcomes and activities are planned and agreed between DFAT and counterpart governments, following extensive document review and national consultations. They provide detail on what will be funded and how these funding decisions are made. The first Pacific Women Country Plan for the Federated States of Micronesia covers 2015–2019. 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.
