Cook Islands Gender Profile 2012

 

cover reportThis is the first profile of women and men and their status in our society that has been systematically collected, compiled, processed and analysed by the Cook Islands Government; this type of report will become a regular output of the national statistical system in the future as training and capacity building initiatives are implemented in the national statistical system and with non-governmental organisation implementing partners.

This report was prepared by the Government of the Cook Islands and the Human Development Programme of the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC). I should like to thank the many people and organisations that provided help and support during the writing of this report.

The gender work in the Cook Islands carried out by SPC’s Human Development Programme is an activity under the Progressing Gender Equality in Pacific Island Countries (PGEP) initiative. PGEP is funded by the Government of Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade under the programme Pacific WomenShaping Pacific Development. SPC and Pacific Island governments are working together to implement the project over a three-year period.

fg 30This report highlights the changes that Cook Islanders have experienced since the start of the millennium through an engendered analysis of statistics. The government recognises that more work is needed. In some areas the pace of change has slowed and in others work has stalled; and in still others we have no measures of change.

However, the government is committed to making more progress to meet the specific needs of Cook Islands women and men. Many challenges remain, including providing a secure economic base for the country, dealing with environmental issues, and securing family safety. The policy implications highlighted in this report provide a thorough assessment of our progress in achieving gender equality in the Cook Islands with examples of positive outcomes and identifying the areas where more effort is needed.

Cook Islands Strategy for the Development of Statistics (CSDS)

In July 2013 the CISO launched a new initiative to develop a Cook Islands Strategy for the Development of Statistics (CSDS), with the help of the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC) and Partnership in Statistics for Development in the 21st Century (PARIS21).

The Cook Islands is the sixth Pacific Island country to embark on developing a CSDS. Follow our progress and find the latest news and CSDS resources here.  

What is the CSDS?

The Cook Islands Strategy for the Development of Statistics (CSDS) process is meant to offer a means for developing statistical capacity across a country's entire national statistical system (NSS).

The purpose of developing an CSDS is to:

  • provide a vision for where the NSS should be in five to ten years
  • set milestones for getting there
  • present a comprehensive and unified framework for continual assessment of evolving user needs and priorities for statistics and for building the capacity needed to meet these needs in a more coordinated, synergistic and efficient manner
  • provide a framework for mobilising, harnessing, and leveraging resources (both national and international)
  • create a basis for effective and results-oriented strategic management of the NSS.
