OUR WORK - WOMEN´S EMPOWERMENT
Despite constitutional guarantees, across the Pacific men and women do not have the same opportunities when it comes to decision-making, accessing justice, and participating in the economy. For development to benefit both women and men of the Cook Islands, Niue, Samoa, and Tokelau, the UNDP promotes gender equality across all of its work. The aim is to incorporate — into all key development programmes — clear gender equity targets and accountability for meeting these particularly to making real inroads towards increasing the income of women at the household level through more and better jobs, and access to health care and education.
