Gender budgeting is concerned with use of public economics to reduce gender gaps in the vital areas of lives of women and girls such as education, health, food security, safety, employment and skills. Gender responsive budgets demand reprioritisation in public spending in such a way that the fund allocation results in not only improved quality of lives of women and girls but also more egalitarian gender relations. Pre-requisite for gender responsive budgeting for state and local self government bodies is transparency/accountability for revenue generation & public expenditure, lifting the veil of statistical invisibility of the unpaid ‘care economy’ and focus on equality & efficiency dimensions of financial provisions and targeting.
