Last week the second cycle of trainings for six oblasts (Rivne, Volyn, Odesa, Chernihiv, Donetsk, Luhansk), which started work on the GRB implementation at the local level in 2018, ended. During the trainings, the working groups continued to learn how to conduct a gender budget analysis of the selected programs in different areas. All participants presented their findings based on the results of the first steps of gender analysis. It is expected that in May and June recommendations and proposals for strengthening gender equality will be developed and presented.
The recommendations will concern the inclusion of provisions that promote the observance of equal rights and opportunities for women and men in the programs, measures that take into account the parity participation of men and women, as well as changes in state statistical, administrative reporting and other documents used in the budget process.
