Gender and Budgets Supporting Resources Collection
What lessons can be learned from the implementation of gender budget initiatives (GBIs) across the world? What tools are available to support successful implementation? This collection of resources on gender and budgets seeks to answer these questions. It complements the overview report from this Cutting Edge Pack by providing summaries of a selection of key materials that reinforce the role of gender-sensitive budgets as a tool for advancing gender equality. It summarises useful overview texts, accessible explanations of key concepts (such as the care economy), geographically and context diverse case studies, practical tools, guidelines, training materials, popular education materials, web resources and networking and contact details. The diversity of material shows that there is no one way of "doing" gender budget work. Context is key in determining which strategies are effective. This collection describes a range of experiences in different contexts which will be useful to those doing GBIs themselves. The printed Pack is available free to southern-based organisations.
