What does it take to achieve gender equality? – Resources and structures key for women's empowerment
With International Women’s Day just around the corner, progress towards gender equality is high on the agenda. EIGE’s research makes a compelling case for the importance of gender mainstreaming and gender budgeting for more gender equality and economic growth.
Each year the EU spends 14% of its Gross Domestic Product (GDP) on public works, from building projects to social infrastructure. Smart targeting of that €2 trillion in public funds and considering how it impacts the lives of both women and men is the essence of Gender-responsive public procurement, or GRPP.
