Country Gender Assessment: Republic of the Fiji Islands
Asian Development Bank | March 2006
The Fiji Islands has made considerable progress in recognizing gender issues in relation to legal and human rights and gender and development (GAD), as reflected in legislative and policy progress since ADB published its Women in Development Country Briefing paper in 1988. The Fiji Islands has made commitments to eight major international agreements and programs for action on gender equality and the advancement of women. It has also made commitments to achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), including those associated directly or indirectly with the status of women and gender equality. In 1999 the government endorsed the national Women’s Plan of Action (WPA) 1999–2008 which has five overall goals for advancing the economic, legal, and political status of women.
