For this purpose it uses gross national income (GNI) per capita data in U.S. dollars, converted from local currency using the World Bank Atlas method, which is applied to smooth exchange rate fluctuations. i-icon Least Developed Country:Yes Since 1971, the United Nations has recognized LDCs as a category of States that are deemed highly disadvantaged in their development process, for structural, historical and also geographical reasons. Three criteria are used: per capita income, human assets, and economic vulnerability. i-icon Gender Inequality Index:0.575 GII is a composite metric of gender inequality using three dimensions: reproductive health, empowerment and the labour market.

Strategic Note Outcome Progress Note Showing data of : 2022

Inclusive, effective and representative marketplace groups are created and grow, contributing to gender, social and economic advancement, the elimination of gender-based discrimination and violence and expanded economic opportunities

The involvement with market vendor associations (MVAs) offer women market vendors, under the Markets for Change project, the opportunities to lead MVAs, participate in decision-making, engage in South-to-South exchange, access learning opportunities, and advocate for effective market that enable economic empowerment. All six market vendors associations (MVAs) in Vanuatu continue to be inclusive, effective, and representative under the leadership of strong women leaders. In the six MVAs, all President positions have been taken up by women. Moreover, in all six MVAs, women fill 100% of the executive and leadership roles. This strong leadership presence of women in the MVAs are ensuring that the voice of women are heard and magnified at all levels, and that workplace barriers causes by gender biases are removed. The MVAs have demonstrated good governance, transparency and increasing accountability through effective operations and management. In 2022 three of the MVAs held their Annual General Meetings and also held general eletions from members, resulting in the election of all-women-led executive committees The six MVAs also revised their constitutions,which have been all been adopted. The new constitutions has given the women leaders greater confidence to plan, organize, negotiate, and implement activities. These activities include those which open up social and economic opportunities for market vendors to actively participate in. Increasingly, more and more market vendors are able to claim their rights through active participation the MVAs. Membership is at an all-time high for Vanuatu MVAs at 4,716 (4,635 F, 81 M) i.e 98% women. UN Women provides technical and financial support to the Markets for Change project.
