Dear colleagues, we are happy to invite you for the online streaming of the Expert Workshop on Socially Inclusive and Gender Responsive Budgeting, organized jointly by seco (Macroeconomic Support Unit) and SDC (Gender and Governance Networks).
The workshop provides a platform to exchange among experts on SIB/GRB policies and practices based on SDC's new Guidance of the topic (see guidance sheet and working paper). The focus is on challenges and opportunities arising when implementing programs in this field, with a particular focus on participative budgeting approaches on local level and its linkages to national level public policies.
