UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls; the empowerment of women; and the achievement of equality between women, men and diverse genders as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security.
All human development and human rights issues involve gender dimensions. UN Women globally focuses on key priority areas that are fundamental to women’s equality, and that can unlock progress across the board. UN Women’s priority areas include increasing women’s leadership and participation in political spaces, ending violence against women, enhancing women’s economic empowerment, engaging in all aspects of women peace and security processes, making gender equality central to national planning and budgeting through Gender Responsive Budgeting (GRB) and advancing gender in intergovernmental processes.
UN Women’s work on Gender Responsive Budgeting (GRB) or Gender Budgeting (GB) involves ensuring that national planning, budgeting, monitoring and evaluation processes incorporate a gender perspective. UN Women’s GRB programmes at the regional and country level have made significant contribution towards this by building political support, developing technical resources and capacities, generating good practices for improving women's access to services and increasing accountability for Gender Equality and Women’s empowerment (GEWE). At the forefront of global, regional and local advocacy for application of GRB, UN Women has built partnerships with diverse government, inter-governmental and non-governmental partners to further efforts and demonstrate GRB’s relevance to sustainable development, aid effectiveness, public sector reform and financing for development.
UN Women’s India Country Office, based in New Delhi is implementing a project with the objective of strengthening institutional mechanisms for GRB resulting in an increase of gender perspective in budgets, improved availability of data, and tracking of progress on gender equality initiatives across ministries and select states/UTs. It will aim to create a conducive policy environment and enhance institutional capacities on gender budgeting at the national and State/UT level. It will identify strategies and operational approaches to strengthen on-going efforts in the area of GRB. Insights generated from this project will enable key stakeholders at the national and state level to accelerate their efforts to ensure that women’s priorities are adequately reflected in national and state budgeting processes, and to make concrete changes for adequate resource allocation towards women’s priorities.
UN Women through this programme will work with national ministries including Ministry of Women and Child Development (MWCD), Ministry of Finance and line ministries to deepen anchoring of GB across union ministries and sectors. It will create and strengthen institutional mechanisms for GRB and institute methodological changes in Planning-Budgeting and Auditing (PBA) systems for enabling gender responsive actions. The project will aim to enhance capacities of government officials and other stakeholders to implement the gender responsive PBA measures, and leverage technology to advance gender budgeting including through and e-governance tool.
