This moderated course by the UN has two principle aims: the first one is to enhance the analytical and practical skills of Gender Responsive Budgeting (GRB) practitioners, and the second aim of this course is to enhance the necessary skills to identify entry points to introduce GRB and to develop a sustainable strategy. The course runs from 17th of April to the 30th of June (11 weeks), and is available in English, French and Spanish. The cost of registration is $600, with scholarships available as per UN scholarship policy. Users are required to create an account with the UN training centre in order to register for courses.
The course is open to GRB practitioners and all who want to conduct GRB analysis (specially, sectoral analysis or gender analysis of expenditure) and/or to implement a GRB initiative using a practical strategy. The course will be of particular benefit to governmental policymakers and development practitioners, including United Nations staff who are supporting GRB initiatives, researchers, civil society and advocates who are working on gender mainstreaming in different spheres such as public policy, planning and budgeting or who are keen to enhance their knowledge of GRB sectoral analysis and strategies.
