Country Plans are the mechanism through which Pacific Women outcomes and activities are planned and agreed between DFAT and counterpart governments, following extensive national consultations. They provide detail on what will be funded and how these funding decisions are made. The first three-year RMI Country Plan was implemented from 2014–2016. The first Country Plan funded the establishment of a domestic violence counselling service, Weto in Mour, operated by local non-government organisation Women United Together Marshall Islands (WUTMI). The first Country Plan also provided capacity support to WUTMI to continue to drive change for Marshallese women.
The Second Country Plan (2019–2022) has two objectives:
▪ Reduce violence against women and expand support services.
▪ Expand women’s economic empowerment.
