Understanding Gender Responsive Budgets

ISBN: 9780850926965
Publisher:Commonwealth Secretariat
Binding:Paperback

A gender responsive budget (GRB) is one which takes into consideration the effect of government revenue and expenditure policies on both women and men. This publication provides a comprehensive understanding of GRB initiatives and will be invaluable to governments, NGOs, donors and other agencies working to integrate a gender analysis into public expenditure policies and budgets.

Divided into four sections, the book provides a conceptual and theoretical framework, traces the evolution of work in this area, assesses the role of different stakeholders and highlights lessons learned to date.

A profile of known activities at country level shows how gender responsive budgets have been used as a pivotal tool with which to assess budgetary performance and impact.

Country Studies and Good Practice

ISBN: 9780850927344
Publisher:Commonwealth Secretariat
Binding:Paperback
Language:English
Pagination:194

This book documents good practice in gender budget work from across the globe. Practitioners share their first-hand experiences and in-depth knowledge of the why, where and how of gender responsive budget (GRB) initiatives. They reflect on both the challenges and successes of initiatives in the Andean region, Australia, Korea, Mexico, the Philippines, Rwanda, Scotland, South Africa and the United Kingdom.

A chapter on the Commonwealth Secretariats involvement in developing and implementing GRB initiatives is also included to suggest the role that can be played by external agencies at the national, regional and international level. This book builds on a previous publication, Gender Budgets Make Cents, (see below) which was designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of GRB initiatives. It described the conceptual framework, evolution of the work and lessons learned, and provided brief summaries of country initiatives.
Together, these titles show the importance of integrating a gender perspective into government budgets to promote equality between women and men. It is hoped that this book will be read by a wide range of people from government, multilateral and bilateral agencies and civil society, and inspire them to take forward gender budget work in their own country and organisation.

A handbook for policy-makers and other stakeholders

New Gender Mainstreaming Series on Development Issues
ISBN: 9780850928648
Publisher:Commonwealth Secretariat
Binding:Paperback
Language:English
Pagination:168

Backed up with a span of concrete examples covering both gaps and proposed strategies, the reasoning develops into a groundbreaking policy approach to equality in education. Equals, Issue 20, April 2008 It is interesting and thought provoking to read and provides a useful set of starting points for developing critical debate. - ESCalate

Gender in Primary and Secondary Education has been written in the context of rapidly expanding education systems worldwide, and particularly the rising enrolment of girls in schools. The author argues that now the challenge of gender mainstreaming goes beyond building schools and ensuring access, to sustaining these gains to secure the future of education for girls. Thus gender mainstreaming in education needs to address the more strategic questions of the relationship between education and wider development and change, and of the relationships between men and women in a rapidly changing world.

The handbook is divided into six chapters, examining key policy and ideological gender mainstreaming issues within education systems and identifying the scope for greater gender mainstreaming. Essential reading for civil servants involved in education sector management, policy planners, education policy analysts and professionals, civil society organisers, and academics.

Building Sustainable Peace

New Gender Mainstreaming Series on Development Issues
ISBN: 9780850927542
Publisher:Commonwealth Secretariat
Binding:Paperback
Language:English
Pagination:232

Issues of socio-economic development, democracy and peace are inextricably linked to gender equality. The main argument of Gender Mainstreaming in Conflict Transformation: Building Sustainable Peace is that gender equality needs to be placed on the policy programme of the entire spectrum of peace and conflict-related initiatives and activities in order to achieve conflict transformation.

These include conflict prevention and early warning mechanisms; peace negotiations and agreements; peacekeeping, disarmament, demobilisation and reintegration; truth and reconciliation commissions; post-conflict reconstruction; and peace building and peace education. In the Commonwealth, as globally, armed conflict has moved into the village, the community, the street and the home, resulting in a gendered distribution of suffering among women and girls, and men and boys.

What is less well known, however, is that women have been making significant contributions to peace processes and rebuilding their societies in all phases of the conflict. In recognition of this, in 2000 the United Nations Security Council made an urgent call in passing Resolution 1325 (UNSCR 1325), for the equal participation and full involvement of women in all efforts for the maintenance and promotion of peace and security, and emphasised the need to increase their role in decision-making with regard to conflict prevention and resolution. Commonwealth Members Responsible for Womens/Gender Affairs, in their new Plan of Action for Gender Equality 2005-2015, reaffirmed the 30 per cent target for all women in all peace initiatives, which was endorsed by Heads of Government (CHOGM, Coolum, 2001), and encouraged member States to mainstream gender equality in all peace processes.

Gender Mainstreaming in Conflict Transformation: Building Sustainable Peace is intended as a contribution to the achievement of these goals. It grew out of a series of symposia and workshops held by the Commonwealth Secretariat in the post-Beijing decade in collaboration with other partners. These fora contributed a wealth of analysis and case studies that made it clear that womens participation in processes of democratisation, as well as in a broad spectrum of peace initiatives in Commonwealth countries, were not just an ideal but rather a reality that needed to be better understood by policy makes and other political and social actors working in fields including democracy, development, peace and conflict.

This book brings together this body of work into an advocacy, capacity-building and policy tool to contribute to gender mainstreaming in all processes of conflict transformation and in building sustainable peace. As one of the Commonwealth Secretariats publications on gender mainstreaming in key development issues, it will be of interest to those working to achieve gender equality, peace, democracy and sustainable development, particularly in situations of armed and other forms of conflict.
