Vanuatu case study in women’s economic empowerment
19 Jun 2015
This case study was developed as part of the evaluation of Australian aid support for women’s economic empowerment conducted by the Office of Development Effectiveness. It is based on information collected from informant interviews and group discussions during the field visit to Vanuatu, as well as a review of relevant Vanuatu country program and initiative documents. The case study examines successful approaches to promote gender equality and women’s economic empowerment pursued at the country program level and within initiatives. It discusses what these efforts have achieved and identifies key challenges that have limited effectiveness.
