Breaking the Silence on Gender and Corruption in the Pacific

United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime

Pacific Island Countries (PICs) are dedicated to meeting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and have have taken action on addressing SDG 5 on gender Equality and SDG 16 on Peace, justice and Strong Institutions. All PICs are also party to the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC) and have made progress on implementing the provisions, including those on corruption prevention and criminalization.

With recognition of these commitments and ongoing efforts, pervasive gender inequality remains a barrier to progress, justice, and social stability across PICs. Additionally, addressing corruption, which forms part of SDG 16, continues to be a challenge, with many Pacific Islanders continuing to report instances of corruption, and corruption perception indexes seeing little change.
