​​Socially inclusive and gender responsive budgeting

The learning journey was conducted with the support of strategic partners, the Institute of Development Studies (IDS) and the backstopping team of HELVETAS Swiss Inter- cooperation (HELVETAS). It included the following steps and products: 
  1. A donor mapping and literature review to understand the state of play and analyse the objects of donor funding and the trends and patterns of their support. 
  2. A stocktaking survey to capture project experiences and good practices from SDC funded projects. 
  3. An input paper that synthesised the knowledge products and pro- posed a human rights-based programming framework for SIB/GRB. 
  4. A 3-day e-discussion amongst DDLGN and Gendernet members and practitioners on definitions of ‘socially excluded’, ‘country-specific contextual challenges’, and ‘drivers of success’. 
  5. Two field-based case studies of SDC funded projects: Voice and Accountability – Citizen’s Participation and Oversight of Budgeting Processes (VAP) and Public Service Improvement (PSI) in Kyrgyzstan and the Sharique project in Bangladesh. 
  6. Face2Face DDLGN in Kiev, Ukraine to discuss the findings of the case studies and validate the human rights-based programming framework for SIB/GRB.
