IMF-DFID Worldwide Review of Gender Budgeting
At the Women’s Budget Group we are happy to see that DFID and the IMF are taking Gender Budgeting seriously.
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has undertaken research on gender and macroeconomics which includes a world-wide survey of gender budgeting as a tool to increase gender equality.
Along with the Department for International Development (DFID), the IMF is reviewing global polices on tax and expenditure against how they promote gender equality.
The IMF-DFID team have released an online toolkit of gender budgeting indicators and gender equality indices. This collaboration on gender budgeting is part of a wider macroeconomic research for development project.
