The Fiji Country Gender Assessment, the first of its kind in the Pacific region, which has been the result of a rigorous and comprehensive two-year effort by the Ministry of Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation and in close partnership with key stakeholders from across government agencies, civil society, women’s rights and faith-based organizations, academia, development partners, the private sector and others.

 

The Fiji Country Gender Assessment offers a detailed and thorough analysis of the progress that has been made in recent years as well as persistent challenges facing Fijian women and girls across various sectors and areas, such as health, economy, education, environment, gender-based violence, social and cultural norms, leadership and decision-making, among others.

 

It further reflects on an inclusive, whole-of-government and whole-of-population approach to address gender inequality in our society with evidence-based recommendations which serve as a roadmap for ensuring that legislation, policies, programmes and budgets are designed to meet the needs and interests of all Fijian women and girls, particularly those who are most marginalised and vulnerable.
