Pacific Women Lead (PWL) is a new Pacific regional development program funded by the Australian Government, which commenced in 2021 for an initial period of five years. With a budget of $170m drawn from the Australian Government’s aid budget, it is focused on supporting Pacific women and girls, in all their diversity, to be safe and equitably share in resources, opportunities and decision-making with men and boys.
Pacific Women Lead Enabling Services (PWLES), managed by DT Global, provides support to the Pacific Community (SPC) and DFAT to implement PWL. Pacific Women Lead Enabling Services (PWLES) provides a range of support functions to the program, including program-wide monitoring, evaluation and learning functions, partnership brokering and an independent Quality and Technical Assurance Group (QTAG).
DT Global, as the successful contractor for the PWLES, will support the continuation of key investments in the current Pacific Women Shaping Pacific Development program, in particular the Balance of Power program.
