Experts’ consultation meeting: “Gender budgeting: closing the gaps between gender equality commitments and resources in the EU”

With the aim of closing the gaps between commitments to gender equality and the policies and programmes funded by EU and national budgets, EIGE's on-going project focuses on effective integration of gender mainstreaming and gender budgeting in the European Structural Investment Funds (ESIF).

This one-day meeting will provide an opportunity to:

  • Validate the recommendations for more effective gender mainstreaming in the ESIF.
  • Obtain feedback on the proposed system to track spending on gender equality.
  • Facilitate an exchange of information about the application of gender mainstreaming and gender budgeting in the ESIF among EU Member States
  • Raise awareness and build capacity on gender budgeting.

This meeting will primarily target leading experts and representatives from the national machineries for gender equality, ministries of finance, managing authorities and practitioners from the regional and local level. Participation is by invitation only.
