Report: Promoting Gender Equality and Women's Economic Empowerment

Under RETA 6143 Subproject, a study titled ‘Mapping and Needs Assessment of Women’s SMEs in the Pacific and Development of Intervention Strategies’ was undertaken in 2014-2015. The purpose was to conduct a comprehensive mapping assessment in six Pacific island countries of the needs, capacity, and constraints faced by women-owned and women-managed small- and medium-sized enterprises, defined as formal businesses with more than five employees. The results were intended to inform programing and enable effective participation of women’s SMEs in Pacific countries.
