Gender mainstreaming is about identifying gender gaps and making the concerns and priorities of women’s, men’s, girls’ and boys’ integral to the design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of policies and programmes so that developmental benefits are relevant, and are shared equally.

Gender Responsive Budgeting (GRB) is the means by which we ensure that the needs and interests of individuals from different social groups are addressed by a government budget and are included in budgets
