Gender Responsive Budgeting (GRB) is a strategy that focuses on integrating a gender perspective in government planning and budgeting. It aims to incorporate a perspective on how to improve equality between women and men based on a gender analysis in every stage of planning, programming, and execution of government budgets. Thus, it should not be seen as an additional budget, but as a way of doing better planning and budgeting based on more specific evidence regarding men and women as beneficiaries of policies and budgets.

"The training on gender responsive budgeting has given me the opportunity to have a better insight into social inclusion policies, especially in terms of advancing the implementation of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and the Sustainable Development Goals. The acquired knowledge and skills indicate that budgets are the most important tools for including access to human rights for women and girls, as well as for the most marginalized groups and persons with disabilities within the policies, including in the context of dealing with COVID-19. Thanks to GBWN, we were able to gain knowledge of policy assessment and analysis to ensure that all public utilities, information, goods and services are available according to age, gender and disability."
