Introducing gender budgeting

Watch Professor Diana Elson explain the concept of gender budgeting[1]

Have a look at UN Women’s video on what is gender responsive budgeting?[2]

As these videos show, both women’s and men’s needs and demands need to be included in budgeting processes. This promotes accountability and transparency in public finance planning and management; increases gender responsive participation in budget processes; and advances gender equality and women’s rights.
