Vanuatu Electoral Environment Project

The development challenge the Vanuatu Electoral Environment project aims to contribute to is the democratic development of Vanuatu. It will do this by supporting the Vanuatu Electoral Office to fulfill its mandate to supervise the registration of electors and the conduct of elections to Parliament and provincial and municipal councils.

Improving the capacity of the Vanuatu Electoral Office will contribute to its ability to manage the political change process through credible electoral processes. As part of this a new voter registration system will seek to more accurately represent the electorate, building the public’s trust in democracy in Vanuatu. 

What we do

The project is organised under four outputs aimed at strengthening the medium-long term capacity of the electoral authorities.

  • Strengthen institutional capacities of the Electoral Authorities
  • Enhance the integrity and accuracy of the Voter Registry
  • Strengthen the ability to conduct voter education and raise public awareness
  • Develop legal framework for political parties and provide capacity building on legal framework to key stakeholders
