Abstract:

"Mexico's National Women's Institute (INMUJERES) and UN Women jointly implement the project "Institutionalization and mainstreaming of a gender perspective in public budgets in Mexico at state and municipal levels". The project involves collaboration with states and municipalities to incorporate a gender perspective in their processes of planning, budgeting, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of public programmes, so as to achieve equality of outcomes between women and men.
 
Gender-responsive public budgets are an indicator of government commitment to women's rights and gender equality at the three levels of government (federal, state and municipal) and one of the most effective ways to accelerate progress towards more equal societies with higher levels of well-being.
 
"Budgets with a gender perspective at federal and state levels in Mexico” summarizes the country's experience in mainstreaming gender in the public budget, with reference to international conventions and treaties signed by the country. It also provides an overview of the national regulatory framework for budgeting with a gender perspective. In addition, it presents what has been done at both the federal and state level to mainstream gender in policy frameworks at the state level" (UN Women).
