Training course “Gender-responsive approach in the budget process” for the employees of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and its structural subdivisions came to an end

In the framework of the Memorandum of cooperation regarding the gender-responsive approach application in the budget process, concluded between the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine and the consortium “NIRAS” Sweden AB, from March to August 2020, experts of the “Gender Budgeting in Ukraine” project have been organising theoretical and practical classes for the officers and employees of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and its structural subdivisions. Following the completion of the course “Gender-responsive approach in the budget process”, the participants received relevant certificates. “This is the first step in implementing a gender-responsive approach to budgeting. I believe that the results of our joint activities will become a solid foundation for gender mainstreaming in the activities of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and subordinate central executive bodies. From now on, it is our responsibility to translate the acquired knowledge and skills into action,” said Kateryna Pavlichenko during the delivery of certificates.

As a result of this cooperation, gender analysis of 12 budget programs was conducted, which helped identify the aspects that need to be changed. The identified problems became the basis for the development of recommendations to the Ministry’s budget programs requests regarding elimination of gender imbalance in the allocation of funds. These recommendations will be taken into account when forming passports of budget programs.

“I would like to thank the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine for its openness to new tools, new approaches and new challenges. It is great that the Ministry of Internal Affairs supports this progressive trend in our society,” noted Oksana Kyseliova.

“Implementation of a policy of equal rights and opportunities for women and men is not just an imperative of our time, but also an urgent need of our society. And we are ready to actively implement all the necessary policies and practices in our department,” said Dmytro Hladchuk, Head of the Human Rights Monitoring Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine.

In total, 10 lectures and 6 practical sessions on the application of the gender-responsive approach were conducted by the GRB project experts for the specialists of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and its structural subdivisions, as a result of which, 58 representatives of these bodies acquired knowledge and skills necessary for gender mainstreaming in the budget process.
