OHCHR - Pacific Regional Office

The OHCHR Regional Office for the Pacific was established in Suva, Fiji, in 2005. It covers 16 countries of the Pacific region, namely: Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands Countries (PICs): Cook Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Fiji, Kiribati, Nauru, Niue, Palau, Papua New Guinea (PNG), Republic of the Marshall Islands, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu. Immense distances separate PICs from each other and they range in size from Niue (population of 1,600) to PNG (7 million). The majority of the population of PICs is indigenous and traditional structures and religious beliefs influence daily life.

OHCHR - South and West Asia

The OHCHR Headquearters covers countries in the South and West Asia region, including: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, the Islamic Republic of Iran, the Maldives, Nepal, and Sri Lanka. The South and West Asia subregion hosts a diverse set of human rights opportunities and challenges. Countries like Afghanistan and Nepal are in the midst of post-conflict transitions but face significant problems of insecurity, exclusion and impunity. Democratic institutions and the rule of law are on the brink of reform in Bangladesh and the Maldives. Conflicts persist in several countries, including Afghanistan, regions of India and Pakistan, and Sri Lanka, with resulting human rights violations and displacement.
