The factsheet provides information about the Increased Political Particiation of Women in Samoa.
Ahead of the 2016 general elections, the Inreased Political Participation of Women in Samoa (IPPWS) project aims to:
- increase community awareness of the importance of ensuring women are able to influence the national development processes through increasing their opportunities for political leadership;
- work with women candidates to strengthen their capacity;
- and work with political parties to raise awareness on gender issues.
Following the elections, the project will support the women members of parliament through a mentoring programme as well as conduct awareness training for all parliamentary members on the importance of gender equality in decision-making and political governance.
