Handbook on Costing gender equality
This handbook is a comprehensive step-by-step guide to costing gender equality priorities. Building on UN Women’s decade long work on gender responsive planning and budgeting, it responds to the growing global demand for guidance on estimating the financing gaps and requirements for achieving gender equality commitments. It provides information about the rationale for costing gender equality and introduces the main approaches and methods, outlines the step-by-step process for undertaking a costing exercise and draws on country examples to demonstrate the approaches and methods used. It also presents five country case studies featuring costing work on gender equality.
