Gender Responsive Budgeting and Aid Effectiveness - Knowledge Briefs
Source of the information:
This series of briefs provides highlights of findings from research reviews conducted under the European Commission (EC)/ UNIFEM Integrating Gender Responsive Budgeting into the Aid Effectiveness Agenda. The three-year programme consists of research and programmatic technical assistance. The programme seeks to demonstrate how gender responsive budgeting (GRB) tools and strategies can help ensure that aid provided in the form of General Budget Support (GBS) and Sector Budget Support (SBS) contributes to the achievement of gender equality goals.
During the first stage of the programme, research was carried out in ten developing countries (Cameroon, Ethiopia, India, Morocco, Nepal, Mozambique, Peru, Rwanda, Tanzania, and Uganda) in July 2008. The research investigated how GRB tools and strategies have been used in the context of aid modalities, such as GBS and SBS. The research aimed to increase national partners’ and European Union (EU) decision-makers’ understanding of the opportunities for using GRB to enhance accountability to ensure that aid delivers effectively for gender equality. The second stage of the programme (June 2009 – June 2011) involves targeted technical support in five of the countries (Cameroon, Nepal, Peru, Rwanda, and Tanzania) to improve capacity to further institutionalize GRB.
