This Gender and Inclusion program, developed as part of Oxfam in the Pacific’s suite of Inclusion
Programs and specifically focused on the context of Vanuatu, will work in ways underpinned by
Oxfam’s Pacific Values and strengths-based interventions, to address systemic and gendered issues
of power and a lack of equality and diversity- particularly within civil society and governance
institutions in Vanuatu. It will address some critical barriers to social, economic and political
participation faced by excluded and marginalized groups such as women, people with disabilities and
people of diverse Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity and Expression, and Sex Characteristics
(SOGIESC) by resourcing organizations and networks run by and with them to challenge and change
gender norms and to test and implement collective action solutions. It will work with women, men
and people of diverse SOGIESC to create environments at multiple levels which enable and foster
greater individual and collective agency; increase feminist leadership and creative problem solving
driven by diversity; and increase the focus on accountability across Governance systems – especially
with regard to community safety, sustainability and wellbeing.
