Profiles of the experiences of gender-responsive budgeting of countries in the region are provided for selected countries as part of the Gender-Responsive Budgeting in the Asia-Pacific Region project.
In the country profiles we seek to provide an understanding of the different approaches to gender-responsive budgeting, the enabling and constraining factors operating within a country, the groups involved and the tools and strategies adopted. Some country profiles are provided in a short form while others are a long version, with the latter providing additional background on the country.
The country profiles (long versions) outline the:
- country's context
- key gender equality issues and the institutional arrangements in place
- budgetary context and
- gender-responsive budgeting experiences of the country with a focus on the national budgets.
The research team drew on a broad range of sources for the country profiles including published research and reports, 'grey literature' and comments by key actors in the field. A list of references is provided for each country profile.
The country profiles are PDF files of less than 1 MB.
