SPECIFIC needs of women and their families are taken into account when local, national and global development priorities are being set, says FemLINKPACIFIC.

The women's organisation said in a statement the Women's Human Security First campaign would highlight whether women felt they were able to access their rights to political participation, health, education, employment, marriage, family relations and equality before the law and the specific rights of rural women.

FemLINKPACIFIC executive director Sharon Bhagwan-Rolls said the organisation was working to produce the Fiji Women's Human Security First report ahead of annual UN Commission on the Status of Women meeting which will address challenges and achievements in the implementation of the Millennium Development Goals for women and girls.

"With the review of the millennium development goals to ensure the needs and capacities of people and communities are taken into account, development processes and priorities must be defined from the community level up, particularly to prevent conflict over resources," said Ms Bhagwan-Rolls.

"Through the specific assistance of the Canada Fund, FemLINKPACIFIC will be able to print and distribute the Fiji — Women's Human Security First Report in time for International Women's Day on March 8 as well as promote the report findings through a public media campaign."

The report will inform candidates and political parties ahead of the scheduled September 2014 election.
