Gender Responsive Budgeting Overview

GRB recognises the often significant differences in the needs of men and women, girls and boys. It recognises the different services that are needed, and the different ways different people use and benefit from existing services. Through GRB, the necessary interventions needed to address these different needs are identified and reflected in government policies, plans and budgets. GRB recognises the huge advantage in adapting budgets to the users of public services.

Gender Responsive & Participatory Budgeting edited by Cecilia Ng
This unique book focuses on the hybridization of grassroots participation in planning, implementing, and developing gender-responsive budgeting. It explores the possibilities for gender sensitive budgeting when implemented using techniques that have been popularized by participatory governance activists. A combination of the two allows for a whole new way of ensuring public budgets are used equitably.
