Introduction to gender-responsive budgeting and aid effectiveness
This series of knowledge briefs was produced on the basis of research carried out under the European Commission-supported programme ‘Integrating Gender Responsive Budgeting into the Aid Effectiveness Agenda'.
The research, which was carried out in ten countries (Cameroon, Ethiopia, India, Morocco, Nepal, Mozambique, Peru, Rwanda, Tanzania, and Uganda) investigated how gender responsive budgeting (GRB) tools and strategies had been used in the context of aid modalities, such as general budget support (GBS) and sector budget support (SBS).
The research aimed to increase national partners' and European Union decision-makers' understanding of the opportunities for using GRB to ensure that aid contributes to the achievement of gender equality goals.
The knowledge briefs provide guidance on using GRB tools to integrate a gender dimension into new modalities of aid financing, so that these support the implementation of governments' gender equality commitments. The target audiences are programmers and policy makers working for national governments, the European Commission, and bilateral donors. The series of briefs consists of:
- Introduction to gender responsive budgeting and aid effectiveness
- Guidance sheet on ‘How can aid be gender responsive in the context of the new aid modalities? Lessons from gender responsive budgeting initiatives'
- Brief on ‘How do donors collectively address gender issues in their aid management practices at country level?'
- Brief on ‘How do Individual donors address gender Issues in their policy, programming, and financing?'
- Summaries of country reports
