Gender Budgeting as a Tool for Poverty Reduction: Concepts, Practices and Capacity Implications

By:

The book highlights the centrality of gender budgeting as a tool for improved transparency and accountability in the fight against inequity and poverty. Using the Convention on Elimination of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) framework, it showcases national and sectoral gender budgeting experiences in three African countries - South Africa, Rwanda and Uganda - to serve as best-practice models for other African countries. The findings reveal that there is no specific template for gender budgeting and that all three countries studied are experiencing serious constraints in terms of implementation of policies and programs designed to promote gender equality in budgetary processes

The recognition of ACBF as the African Union’s Specialized Agency for Capacity Development launches the beginning of a new era for capacity building by ACBF, which will require an appropriate level of political commitment and financial support from all stakeholders.

The remarkable achievements ACBF has registered over the past 26 years is not by accident in our opinion. They have come through hard work, dedication, commitment, purposeful leadership, support from the member countries as well as productive partnership building.

Africa needs ACBF as much, probably more now, than at the time it was created in 1991.

Ghana’s partnership with ACBF is a tremendous blessing for us and therefore the opportunity for Ghana to host the 26th ACBF Board of Governors Meeting is something that we treasure.
