The Australian Government, through Pacific Women, has committed approximately $34.8 million over 10 years (2012–2022) to advance the status of women in Solomon Islands.
The Solomon Islands Country Plan identified a portfolio of activities in the areas of women’s economic empowerment and ending violence against women. In addition, it built on Australia’s partnership with the Ministry of Women, Youth, Children and Family Affairs (MWYCFA) through support for institutional strengthening and worked to support the design and monitoring of Australian-funded programs to better respond to the needs of women and girls.
The Solomon Islands Country Plan also recognises the important contribution that the Australian High Commission in Honiara makes to gender equality through mainstreaming gender outcomes in the aid program as well as through political, diplomatic and corporate activities.
