The Australian Government, through Pacific Women, has committed approximately $9.9 million over 10 years (2012–2022) on initiatives supporting women’s empowerment in Kiribati.
The majority of funding under the Kiribati Country Plan supports the implementation of the National Policy and Strategic Action Plan to Eliminate Sexual and Gender Based Violence 2011–2021. This is being done through support to a women and children’s support centre and provision for the existing Catholic Church crisis centre.
In addition to Pacific Women, DFAT makes an important contribution to gender equality in Kiribati through mainstreaming gender outcomes in the aid program, as well as through political, diplomatic and corporate activities.
