Gender-responsive budgeting (GRB) is a concept and a practical approach widely used in developed and developing countries in the last 35 years. It can serve as a tool to achieve the triple objective of promoting development, promoting gender equality and fulfill human rights. UN Women supports efforts to ensure gender-sensitive governance frameworks and to expand their scope, in particular to improve: participation in key planning processes, approaches based on lessons learned and the institutionalization of these in public administration in general. Based on this experience, the UN Women Training Centre in coordination with the Leadership and Governance Section, has developed an Advanced Face-to-Face Course on Gender-Responsive Budgeting, one session in Spanish from 18-22 September in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic and one in English from 9-13 October in Belgrade, Serbia.
