Implementing gender responsive budgeting is essential for the advancement of the Agenda 2030

2 May 2018

Making the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into a tangible reality is a challenge that requires governments, institutions and organisations to manage its resources from a gender perspective. In 2018 the UN Women Training Centre’s courses on Gender Responsive Budgeting (GRB) will therefore contribute to the indicator number 5.c.1 of the SDGs.

This indicator measures governmental efforts to monitor budget allocations intended for gender equality throughout the course of public financial management. 5.c.1 is the only indicator in the monitoring framework for SDGs that links the national budgets with the implementation of legislation and policies in the name of gender equality and women’s empowerment (Objective 5.c.).

The UN Women Training Centre has four years of experience holding these GRB courses, with expert trainers available to teach in English, Spanish and French. Furthermore, the participants are able to choose from different methods of training. These include:
