Gender budgeting is the implementation of the gender mainstreaming strategy in the budgeting process.
Gender budgeting, i.e. budgeting that takes into account the needs and interests of women and men, means taking gender equality objectives into account in the (national and local) budgeting process.
This means gender-based assessment of budgets (i.e. the impact on men and women is separately assessed), integration of the perspective of gender (i.e. consideration of the different roles, interests, needs, opportunities, obligations, rights, etc. of women and men) at all levels of the budgeting process and the restructuring of revenue and expenditure in such a manner that it would support the promotion of gender equality.
