Responding to Violence Against Women in Melanesia and East Timor
Stop Violence: Responding to violence against women in Melanesia and East Timor sets out Australia’s priorities and actions to prevent and reduce violence against women in Melanesia and East Timor. The report has been prepared in response to AusAID’s Office of Development Effectiveness (ODE) report Violence against Women in Melanesia and East Timor: Building on Global and Regional Promising Approaches. It outlines the Australian Government’s support to increase women’s access to justice and access to support services, prevent violence against women, and ensure an integrated approach. Violence against women, and the fear of violence, are significant human rights violations. The Australian Government recognises that reducing violence against women is crucial to achieving equality between men and women and delivering good development outcomes. The government is committed to reducing violence against women in Australia, as well as contributing to international efforts to end violence against women globally and in our region. There is now global recognition that violence against women can undermine, and even reverse, hard-won development gains. The impact of violence against women on developed and developing economies is devastating. New research commissioned by Australia’s National Council to Reduce Violence against Women and their Children found that if appropriate action is not taken now, violence against women will cost the Australian economy $15.6 billion by 2021-22. Ending violence against women will require a long-term commitment and AusAID is intensifying its efforts to respond, as part of the Australian international development assistance program, to violence against women. While the ODE report and this response focus on the issues of domestic violence and sexual assault, AusAID recognises the spectrum of violence that women face and is committed to addressing all forms of gender-based violence through our development assistance program.
