Published by IFC Sustainability
This series of six Gender and Investment Climate Reform Assessments for Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Timor-Leste, Tonga, and Vanuatu are the result of collaboration between the Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID) and IFC. The reports ask whether women face different or additional investment climate constraints to those faced by men. And they make recommendations aimed at ensuring that women benefit from ongoing efforts to improve the investment climate on the same basis as their male counterparts.

this report heavily draws.

especially grate\ue001ul to the AusAID mission, and notably to Anna Naupa o\ue001 AusAID Vanuatu, \ue001or the
exceptional organization and support she provided during the mission and \ue001or generously sharing her
valuable insights and knowledge.

Finally, we wish to thank the women entrepreneurs who took the time to share their stories and
challenges during \ue001ocus group discussions in Port Vila, Santos, and Tanna islands.
