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 and men and the third gender 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. The six 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 GRB 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.
The report of the Committee on the Status of Women in 1974 brought to light gender perspective on public expenditure. The Five-Year Plans, starting from the Eight Plan (1992-97), recognised the need for committed resources for gender equality and women’s empowerment through recommending significant interventions on GRB. The 8th Five Year Plan acknowledged the need for committed resources to advance Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment measures. Subsequent Five-Year Plans, including the 12th Five Year Plan (2012-17) have underscored the need for institutionalizing GRB. In 2004-05, the report of the expert group of classification of government expenditure became instrumental in laying out the road map for GRB in India. This was followed by the adoption of “Budgeting for Gender Equity” as a mission statement by the Ministry of Women and Child Development (MWCD), Government of India (GoI).
In 2005-06, the Ministry of Finance, GoI introduced Gender Budget Statement (GBS) which aimed to reflect the quantum of budgetary allocations for programmes/schemes that substantially benefit women. In 2017-18, 35 Union ministries/departments/territories published the GBS, accounting for 5.2 percent of the overall magnitude of the Union Budget of India. Another important mechanism institutionalised by the Ministry of Finance was setting up of Gender Budget Cells (GBCs) which serve as focal points for mainstreaming gender through GRB. GBCs have been set up in 57 ministries/departments of the Union Government thus far.
Over ten years of sustained initiatives on GRB have focused on enhancing institutional and individual capacities, mainstreaming GRB into planning and budgeting (such as gender-aware cabinet notes, Expenditure Finance Memoranda, Budget Call Circulars, etc.) and gender aware policy appraisals. GRB Efforts at the Union Government have been replicated by states. For example, a number of states publish a GBS, have set up GBCs/Gender Focal Points, and constituted committees to assess progress on GRB. While GRB efforts at the Union and State level have been myriad, it is proposed that a GRB Composite Index be developed that measures GRB initiatives against advances in gender equality and women’s empowerment (GEWE). This Index will thus draw linkages between GRB and the status of development made in achieving GEWE at the outcome and impact levels.
The GRB Composite Index will use key dimensions/indicators for scoring GRB efforts within Ministries/Departments and States to arrive at a cumulative percentile score. Some of the indicative dimensions could be the following.
It is within this context that UN Women seeks the services of a Research Consultant to develop a GRB Composite Index.

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.
