OUR FOCUS

Gender equality

Gender-responsive economic policy making

UNDP supports countries to design economic policies and strategies that take into consideration the differentiated needs and contributions of women and men and address gender-based disparities in access to services and resources. This requires raising awareness among policy makers about the relevant gender aspects of different policy areas, such as taxation, public budgets and employment.

As part of this work, UNDP helps partners to inform their economic policies and plans with sound gender analysis; to collect, analyze and use gender-disaggregated data; and develop and implement gender-sensitive budget processes.
