Regional Guidance from the PRIF

This Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment Strategy applies across all work undertaken by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT). It strengthens gender equality and women’s empowerment as a priority across Australia’s foreign policy, economic diplomacy and development efforts. The strategy acknowledges the systems and structures that can play a significant role in entrenching or exacerbating discriminatory practices. The Australian Government is committed to pursuing gender equality outcomes across the international agenda.
