This Experts Meeting allowed delegates from OECD countries to share practical experiences – successes and challenges – in implementing Gender Budgeting.
This meeting arose from the strong interest shown in this topic at the 37th Annual Meeting of OECD Senior Budget Officials (SBO) in Stockholm in June 2016, which highlighted the great diversity of practices in this area and that work on Gender Budgeting was at an early stage in many OECD countries.
The first meeting of OECD Gender Equality Institutions: "Better Governance for Gender Equality" took place in Reykjavik on 17 May 2017. It brought together senior officials from OECD countries' gender equality institutions and representatives from the Centre of Government to promote gender-sensitive policy-making and they shared insights to help increase the impact of gender equality initiatives.
This meeting was held back to back with the Experts Meeting on Gender Budgeting so that gender equality and gender budgeting experts had an opportunity to meet and discuss matters of joint interest.
