Gender Development Planning & Budgeting – According to the project manager at NEPAD secretariat; ‘Africa needs gender responsive planning and budgeting’. This was further explained that African women still face institutional, legal, political, environmental as well as socio-economic constraints, which impact their capacity and ability to undertake sustainable livelihoods. UN Women explains that Gender-responsive budgeting (GRB) is government planning, programming and budgeting that contributes to the advancement of gender equality and the fulfilment of women’s rights. It entails identifying and reflecting on needed interventions to address gender gaps in government policies, plans and budgets.

This Gender Development Planning & Budgeting course therefore aims at equipping government development planners and budget formulators on how to engender their work for sustainable development.
