Forum on PNG Women Candidates’ Participation in the 2017 General Election

A National Forum on Women Candidates’ Participation in the 2017 PNG Election was organised by UNDP-PNG on 17 and 18 August 2017. The objective of the Forum was to gather views on how best to address the reality that no women were elected during the June 2017 general elections to sit in the 10th Parliament of PNG. The Forum provided an opportunity for participants to reflect upon the conduct of the recent elections, in order to assess what strategies and approaches worked and did not work so well for women candidates, as well as to propose innovative activities that could be implemented over the coming five years to ensure women’s presence in the national parliament after the 2022 elections. This Report captures the discussions and recommendations arising from the Forum.

PNG 2017 Women Candidates - survey on what worked and what did not

At the June 2017 PNG National Elections, no women were elected to the 10th PNG Parliament. UNDP organised a Forum on Women Candidates’ Participation in the PNG National Elections from 17-18 August to draw attention to the issue of women’s lack of representation and identify strategies for addressing this problem. In advance of the Forum, UNDP and UN Women shared a PNG Women Candidates Survey on Facebook on 15 August 2017 that was intended to assist in diagnosing the challenges women face and finding responses to address them. Links are provided to a word summary of the results of the Survey, as well as an overview Powerpoint Presentation.

Pacific Women in Leadership Synthesis Report

In 2016, the DFAT-funded Pacific Women Shaping Pacific Development Programme commissioned the development of a Roadmap to guide its investments across the region. The Roadmap was based on three Synthesis Reports, which delved deeper into Pacific Women’s first three focus areas, namely: (i) leadership and decision making, (ii) women’s economic empowerment, and (iii) ending violence against women. This Women in Leadership Synthesis Report was developed through a combination of literature review, stakeholder consultations, and in-depth analysis, and supplement the foundational Pacific Women Design Document.

Practice Parliament for Women Training Manual launched

The idea for a Practice Parliament for Women came about as a direct response to the call from women around the Pacific region to be supported, and to have their political and policy skills developed. This initiative drew on the positive experiences reported from youth parliament forums in the region and elsewhere. The Practice Parliaments are designed to fill some of the gaps in the existing efforts to support women’s political participation by developing a broader set of skills and by giving women participants the opportunity to immediately apply those skills. Responding to the success of this initiative, UNDP has produced this publication to provide guidance to national partners on how to organize and run a Practice Parliament for women.
