Markets for Change Solomon Islands
A snapshot of UN Women’s Markets for Change project in the Solomon Islands delivered by the Fiji Multi-Country Office. Funded largely by the Australian Government, the project works with two major markets in Solomon Islands, as well as 18 others in Fiji and Vanuatu, to help ensure they are safe, inclusive and non-discriminatory. Markets are an essential source of income for many Solomon Islands households and women make up the majority of market vendors; despite this women are not usually involved in the decision-making processes that shape their workplaces.
