Through Pacific Women, the Australian Government will spend approximately AU$1.4 million over 10 years on initiatives supporting women and girl’s empowerment in the Republic of Palau.
This is the first Pacific Women Country Plan for Palau. It was developed on the basis of collaboration and consultation with key stakeholders. Under this plan, and with a view to complement existing local initiatives that contribute to gender equality and women’s empowerment, the Australian Government will invest in a range of activities to:
- Increase economic opportunities for women;
- Strengthen the national response to violence against women and provide expanded support services; and
- Strengthen the enabling environment within government to increase gender sensitive recruitment, policy formation, gender analysis, planning, service provision, and the collection of fully disaggregated data.
