The PacWIP site was launched in April 2012. It is a new site which aims share information on efforts to support women in politics in the Pacific. On this page, we seek to provide answers to some of the Frequently Asked Questions about PacWIP. If you have any questions about the site, please do not hesitate to contact us at pacwip@gmail.com.

UNDP and the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat have partnered together to promote women in politics for many years. Following a number of consultations, UNDP and PIFS discussed ideas around how to facilitate better information-sharing. To this end, it was agreed that UNDP, as an institutional partner with global expertise in developing knowledge-sharing platforms, would take the lead in developing an initial pilot website to share information on Pacific Women in Politics initiatives.

The UNDP Pacific office in Suva, Fiji, has initiated this pilot website as part of its regional Effective Governance programme.

The PacWIP website is very much designed as a resource for the entire Pacific. In that context, organisations working on women in politics are encouraged to share information about their WIP work through the websites news, events and publications pages. The “Who Works On WIP” page is also a place for organisations to share more general information on their WIP work.
