The New Hungary Development Plan is the country's main document of development policy and the programming of Hungary's expenditure of the EU Structural Funds. As a European requirement, gender equality is a horizontal principle, although sometimes embedded in a wider equal opportunities framework. The Plan specifies gender mainstreaming as a mechanism that should be utilised in the programming. Gender equality should be incorporated in all levels and stages of the programming process including planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation. Besides, it emphasises the need for specific programmes and projects focusing on women's situation and gender issues. It also determines the involvement of representatives of gender NGOs in the monitoring process as full members in all Monitoring Committees.
