discussion was based on questions how to integrate gender across the 5
PSGs to support SDG5 and 16, what challenges COOF's face in doing this,
how they integrate a gender lens in their context analysis and what is
new with agenda 2030. A report of the e-discussion summarises the most
important issues from the 28 contributions from COOF's from all over the
world and SDC partners. The rich fundus of experiences can also be accessed in form of a compilation of all contributions.
video interview with Flurina Derungs from the Interdisciplinary Centre
for Gender Studies (University of Bern) who was responsible for the
e-discussion presents the main findings. Even though there were many
valuable contributions only some examples can be discussed. A big thanks
to all of you who contributed to this very lively and inspiring
Key issues of E-Discussion: Video Interview with Flurina Derungs
2015 there were two joint E-Discussions among two different
SDC-networks around Gender & Finances, the Gendernet as well as the
Democratisation, Decentralisation and Local Governance Network (DDLGN).
In May there was a stock-take on GENDER and FISCAL DECENTRALISATION.
This exchange focused on the gender dimension in intergovernmental
fiscal transfer schemes. Given this theme is a ‘frontier topic’ with
limited conceptual development and references to country cases, the
consultation was framed as a ‘stock-take’ with the aim to build up a
first information base. This first E-Discussion on Gender & Fiscal
Decentralisation was followed by a second one on GENDER and TAXATION in
September. This discussion focused on the gendered impacts of tax policy
and tax administration. The potential methods of engagement for
development partners was discussed as a cross-cutting topic.
