BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES
The Cook Islands National Commission for Information and Communication has been requested to seek information from relevant organisations, and to coordinate responses into a country report. The survey has been prepared by UNESCO to ascertain how the Cook Islands is progressing towards achieving the Strategic Objective J of the Beijing Declaration, Media and Gender, from the standpoint of government actions. The survey will not only raise awareness as to how media can be integrated into gender policies and strategies locally but it will also contribute to UNESCO’s 20 year review of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action through the publication and dissemination of the research results.
RESPONSES ARE DUE BY DECEMBER 1, 2014
