Pacific Sub-Regional Office
The UN Women Pacific Sub-Regional Office is based in Suva, Fiji and works alongside the 19 other UN agencies (FAO, ILO, OHCHR, UNDP Fiji Multi-County Office, UNDP Pacific Centre, UNDP Samoa Multi-County Office, UNAIDS, UNDSS, UNEP, UNESCAP, UNESCO, UNFPA, UN-Habitat, UNICEF, UNISDR, UNOCHA, UNV, WHO, WMO) in the region and in 15 countries: Cook Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Fiji, Kiribati, Nauru, Niue, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Republic of Marshall Islands, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tokelau, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu.
The UN in the Pacific has three UN Country Teams, each with its own Resident Coordinator. The UN Country Team in Papua New Guinea is a self-starter with Delivering-as-One United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF), 2012-2015. The UNDAF in Papua New Guinea is on a different cycle than the other 14 countries in the region. The UN Women office in Papua New Guinea is headed by an international Country Programme Manager, who leads the team in achieving results. Where required, UN Women’s Sub-Regional Office based in Fiji provides operational and programmatic support to the UN Women office in Papua New Guinea.
The other two UN Country Teams are based in Fiji and Samoa and are cooperating under a joint UNDAF covering 14 countries. The Pacific UNDAF cycle is from 2013-2017. The Fiji UNCT covers 10 countries (Federated States of Micronesia, Fiji, Kiribati, Nauru, Palau, Republic of Marshall Islands, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu), and the Samoa UNCT covers Samoa, Cook Islands, Niue and Tokelau.
The UN Women Pacific Sub-Regional Office works for the 15 countries in the Pacific, with field presences in Kiribati, Samoa, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu. Each field presence is led by a national Country Programme Coordinator.
