UNDP calls for applications for Women in Parliament training

The practice training aims to support more PNG women to participate in elections and be elected to Parliament and raise awareness on increasing women’s participation in politics and leadership roles.

UNDP has been running Practice Parliaments for Women across the Pacific.

In 2012, 50 PNG women participated in the first ever Practice Parliament for Women in the country.

The idea of a Practice Parliament for Women provided a practical forum to expose participant to the realities of policy-making and being a parliamentarian.
