The learning journey on Gender-responsive and socially inclusive budgeting is a joint process by the gender equality and DDLG networks with support from Helvetas and the Institute of Development Studies (IDS) as their respective back stoppers. The aim of the learning journey is to explore the current practices of SDC, other donors and general development actors in order to design a programming framework, guidelines and support tools for network members to strengthen their programme and project efforts. The specific scope of the learning journey is to analyze and propose how SIB/GRB can be integrated into local governance processes and in this regards, the emphasis is on the expenditure side of public finance management, rather than the tax income and revenue side. Preparatory documents have been gathered and established for this learning journey. These are summarized in a concept paper providing the conceptual framework for our reflections on GRB/SIB.

A first exchange took place during an e-discussion (16-18 April 2018). Peer-learning has continued during the DDLG Face to face in Kiev.
