Introduction

Gender responsive budgeting is a tool to ensure that gender equality commitments are reflected and realised in public budgets. Since the 1990s, gender budgeting is increasingly used in developed and developing countries by different actors (ministries of finance, line ministries, NGOs, gender advocates and universities) to assess impact of government expenditures on citizens, women and men, and to transform budget programmes to target priority needs and close gender gaps.
