Information from the 2016 OECD Performance Budgeting Survey highlights that gender-sensitive measures form part of the performance information provided in budget submissions in nine OECD countries (Austria, Belgium, Estonia, Israel, Korea, Mexico, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland).
In Austria, gender budgeting was introduced as part of the performance based budgeting framework codified in the budget law. The provisions require each chapter within the Annual Budget Statement to have outcome objectives, with at least one objective directly addressing gender equality. Sample objectives include: higher female participation in the labour market, improvement of the state of health of males aged above 50, reduction of the gender pay gap, and improvement of road security for males under 25.
In Israel, line ministries have conducted gender analysis of the budget since 2014. This process has resulted in a more gender balanced allocation of resources in a number of areas, such as science (scholarships and funds).
Canada published its first Gender Statement with the budget in 2017, providing a gender-based analysis and overview of budgetary measures. The Gender Statement represents the Canadian Government's first comprehensive effort at reviewing and reporting on how budgetary decisions affect women and men differently. The Canadian Government has committed is to improve upon this work, and make meaningful progress in elevating gender equality to the mainstream of government decision-making.
