Women’s leadership and participation is one of UN Women’s primary areas of work as mandated in its inception, recognising the integral role of women in strong and stable democratic processes. In order to promote the leadership and participation of women in decision-making processes, UN Women works to promote gender equality in parliaments, electoral bodies, political parties, media and other institutions.
The number of women in key leadership and decision-making roles in Papua New Guinea has remained consistently low. With female representation in parliamentary decision-making decreasing from 2.7% to zero in the most recent 2017 elections, a women’s leadership vacuum now exists at the national level. In recognition of the challenges faced by women vying for leadership and decision-making roles, the Government of Papua New Guinea has agreed to a range of national and international commitments to support women’s equal participation in public life and within political processes.
Description of the Programmes
In partnership with the Governments of Australia and New Zealand, UN women and UNDP are working with the Government of PNG and the Autonomous Bougainville Government through the Women Make the Change (WMC) programme to increase women’s participation and leadership in politics at subnational and national level.
