Vanuatu Country Plan Summary

Author/s: DFAT

The Australian Government, through Pacific Women, has committed approximately $11.9 million over 10 years (2012–2022) to advance the status of women in Vanuatu.

The second Vanuatu Country Plan focuses on:

  • working with and influencing the Vanuatu government to implement its National Gender Equality Policy
  • further developing a roadmap for undertaking progressive and systemic change to achieve gender equality in Vanuatu and ensuring that government and civil society are supported to work in partnership to own and progress this roadmap
  • an ongoing program of knowledge development that is supported through research and monitoring and evaluation.

In addition to Pacific Women, DFAT makes an important contribution to gender equality in Vanuatu through mainstreaming gender outcomes in the aid program, as well as through political, diplomatic and corporate activities.
