The 13th Triennial Conference of Pacific Women and 6th Meeting of the Pacific Ministers for Women is scheduled for the first week of October 2017, in Suva, Fiji, four years after the last meeting in 2013, which was hosted by the Government of Cook Islands.
The conference will bring together senior government officials and civil society representatives from across the 22 Pacific Island countries and territories to discuss progress made on commitments on gender equality, and identify measures for accelerating progress and implementation of gender equality commitments in the region.
Successive Triennial Conferences have provided an important space for the participation of civil society organisations. At this year’s conference we are also keen to see greater engagement by civil society, particularly young women and women with disability. The conference will also encourage greater partnership between governments and development partners to support the participation of civil society representatives on official delegations, so that there is a stronger, more amplified Pacific voice at global discussions.
