The WBG has a long history of working to make budgets more transparent and of holding politicians to account for how money is gathered; we see this as being central to achieving gender equality. But there is so much more to do, especially if we want government budgets to help change the social ‘rules’ that are at the heart of inequality.

We’re been working with Oxfam to see how we can advance the position of women and young people in government budgets, and in partnership with them have produced a new set of Gender Responsive Budgeting resources – including a rough guide and a simple training budget cycle tool – will we hope, start to open the way for more people and groups, and especially women and women’s organisations, to join in and take action.

The budget cycle tool is designed to help activists, experts and policy makers consider what putting females, and other genders, at the heart of government budgets would look like. That way we can decide where best to focus our energies for lasting impact in our own countries and contexts.

These resources are also available in French and Spanish and can be downloaded via the Oxfam website.
