Pacific Commonwealth Equality Project


The Pacific Commonwealth Equality Project is a two-year project being implemented by RRRT from 2018-2020.

The goal of this project is to increase the capacity of Pacific Island Countries and Territories (PICTs) to drive inclusive and equitable social change, through good governance, respect for human rights, and fairer opportunities for politically, socially and economically marginalized communities.

The Project has three outcomes: (1) more PICTs establish active, Paris-principle compliant National Human Rights Institutions (NHRIs); (2) more PICTs develop NHRI Action plans to guide, and monitor implementation of Universal Periodic Review (UPR) recommendations; (3) strengthened capabilities of marginalized groups, young members of parliament (MPs), young business and civil society leaders to monitor and advocate for human rights and social inclusion. 

The project will be implemented in Fiji, Kiribati, Nauru, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu.
