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 GB 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 GB, UN Women has built partnerships with diverse government, inter-governmental and non-governmental partners to further efforts and demonstrate GB’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 GB resulting in an increase of gender perspective in budgets, improved availability of data, and tracking of progress on gender equality initiatives in select central ministries and states. It will aim to create a conducive policy environment and enhance institutional capacities on gender budgeting at the national and state level. 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 nodal GB state departments and line departments in 6 states, namely, Assam, Chhattisgarh, Haryana, Goa, Tamil Nadu, Uttarakhand, to deepen anchoring of GB. The project will aim to enhance capacities of government officials and other stakeholders to implement gender responsive planning and budgeting measures, and leverage technology to advance gender budgeting including through an e-governance tool.
Within this context, UN Women seeks the services of State Technical Coordinator-Gender Budgeting (GB) who will be placed within the nodal GB department in Tamil Nadu and will be responsible for implementing programme activities on gender budgeting in the assigned State.

In July 2010, the United Nations General Assembly created UN Women, the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women. The creation of UN Women came about as part of the UN reform agenda, bringing together resources and mandates for greater impact. It merges and builds on the important work of four previously distinct parts of the UN system (DAW, OSAGI, INSTRAW and UNIFEM), which focused exclusively on gender equality and women’s empowerment.
