This document explains broadly what gender-responsive budgeting (GRB) can entail while also highlighting inadvisable interpretations of the term. It explores how GRB interacts with public finance reforms and, in particular, the introduction of performance-oriented, programme based budgeting. The module includes practical work developing basic gender budget statements to illustrate that this type of work is relatively simple. It also explores the experiences in gender-responsive budgeting of a number of African countries. In doing so, it gives a sense of the wide scope of work that can be done under the GRB umbrella.
