As Asian American Pacific Islander Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander month draws to a close, the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command Office of Women, Peace & Security (USINDOPACOM WPS) spotlights leaders in the Pacific Islands working at the nexus of human rights and defense strategy.

Partnering to Build Climate Resilience:

Partner organizations such as Transcend Oceania, Pacific Center for Peacebuilding, femLINKpacific, and the Pacific Disaster Center are working every day to advance sustainable solutions to mitigate climate change impacts, advance food security, and promote effective disaster responses. Listen to leaders discuss their work in a podcast series on Building Inclusive Resilience in the Pacific produced by USINDOPACOM WPS partner Women of Color Advancing Peace, Security, and Conflict Transformation (WCAPS).

The series is just one output from a workshop on Advancing Women, Peace, and Security: Building Inclusive Resilience in the Pacific delivered by USINDOPACOM WPS, the Center for Naval Analysis (CNA), and WCAPS in August 2023.

The WPS Team continuously works with organizations such as CNA, and WCAPS to apply the guiding principles of United Nations Security Council 1325 on WPS, which acknowledges the unique impact of conflict and crisis on women and girls; recognizes women’s full participation in peace and security processes; and calls for Member States to incorporate a gender perspective within their institutions.
