Peer-learning and exchange event on gender and climate change financing

Featured Image Gender

Gender responsive budgeting (GRB) is well established with over two decades of experience with related reforms. Climate responsive budgeting (CRB) is relatively new and the two have largely been pursued independently. However, similarities and complementarity between them have led to calls for the ‘double mainstreaming’ of both gender and climate change. Gender considerations have increasingly become a requirement when accessing international climate finance. The two-day virtual event provided a platform for officials from across Africa to share their experience on the actions and methods used to implement gender responsive budgeting and/or gender responsive climate budgeting. Related actions span the entire budget cycle. Opportunities were explored to further coordinate the integration of gender and climate change into public financial management systems.
