The Indonesian government began the process of institutionalizing gender concerns with the presidential instruction on gender mainstreaming in 2000. A regulatory framework governs the GRB initiative at the national and sub-national levels including both government and civil society actors. Over the past decade, GRB initiatives have been conducted by both government and civil society at both national and sub-national levels. Cooperation between civil society and government, while not without its tensions, has been critical to the promotion of gender responsive planning and budgeting in Indonesia.
