Strengthening Public Service Through Leadership
The Vanuatu Council of Ministers agreed to Decision 156/2014 to mandate that all Ministers, Directors-general, Heads of agencies and Institutions nominate at least one qualified woman for each vacancy on a government committee, task force, working group or other official body. The decision affects all national, provincial and local government groups.
National Gender Equality Policy
Stan Antas' "Respecting One Another" is the title song from UNICEF Vanuatu's "LEFTEMAP RISPEK" campaign to End Violence against Children in Schools. It has been launched as part of the 16 Days of Activism (Nov 25-Dec 10) with the support of the Ministry of Justice and Ministry of Education to increase the level of awareness about the need for respect between children, parents, teachers, and communities in order to reduce violence in schools.
