Since 2019 Coram International has been contracted to develop a five-year National Youth Policy for Fiji, along with a costed action plan and monitoring and evaluation framework. The Policy includes seven strategic priorities (health and wellbeing; education, skills and employment; safety, protection and justice; environment and climate change; participation and empowerment; inclusion; and strengthening the enabling environment) and was developed following a consultative process.

In 2016, Coram International was contracted by UNICEF Pacific to finalise Situation Analyses of Women and Children for 14 Pacific Island countries, including Cook Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Fiji, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Nauru, Niue, Palau, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tokelau, Tonga, Tuvalu, and Vanuatu. Coram International was also commissioned to draft a regional report, providing an overview of the situation of women and children in the whole Pacific region. In-country data collection was carried out in three of the Pacific Islands (Federated States of Micronesia, Fiji and Solomon Islands), with the aim of filling gaps in the existing evidence base. The 14 Situation Analyses cover a broad range of themes and issues pertaining to women’s and children’s rights, including health, nutrition, water and sanitation, education, child protection and social protection. The Situation Analyses provide an evidence base to inform decision-making across sectors that are relevant to the realisation of children’s and women’s rights. Furthermore, the reports are intended to inform UNICEF’s country programme strategies in the Pacific Islands.
