about psdi

There is growing awareness that promoting women’s economic empowerment makes good business sense. Yet legal, regulatory, and policy barriers persist that prevent women’s full and equal participation in Pacific private sectors. This report proposes a new framework, designed to measure and improve gender inclusivity in the private sector in the Pacific. The PSDI Gender Inclusive Private Sector (GIPS) framework serves as a practical checklist for Pacific governments and institutions to measure progress and identify areas where further improvements are needed.
