The Australian Government, through Pacific Women, has committed approximately $1.8 million over ten years (2012–2022) on initiatives supporting women’s empowerment in Tuvalu.
The second Country Plan will support the personal and political empowerment of women by working with the Tuvalu National Council of Women, island councils and Falekaupule. Support for a National Women and Youth Forum will allow women and youth to assess the implementation of the National Gender Policy in their own communities, discuss challenges and enabling factors, and identify their priorities moving forward.
In addition to Pacific Women, DFAT makes an important contribution to gender equality in Tuvalu through mainstreaming gender outcomes in the aid program, as well as through political, diplomatic and corporate activities.
