Gender Responsive Budgeting – A Different Way of Thinking About Budgeting

Description

This webcast will address a topical and developing area of public financial management. Gender responsive budgeting is an approach to budgeting that uses fiscal policy and administration to advance gender equality and the development of women. It is gaining popularity among governments around the world and offers a unique approach to formulating a budget in a gender responsive way and linking gender responsive policies so that women and men are treated equitably. Gender responsive budgeting is grounded in the understanding that policy decisions and resource allocations of public money can affect the economic and social outcomes for women and men. In this webcast we will review advantages and challenges of gender responsive budgeting, in particular, you will learn the lessons from country case studies. Additionally, we will talk about the practical challenges of gender responsive budgeting. We will also discuss the wider policy context and how it contributes to advancing gender equality, particularly meeting the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Finally, participants will hear firsthand from Public Finance by Women (PFW), about their priorities for promoting gender equality in the public financial management system.
