Transformative Financing (Gender budgeting)

UN Women continues to spearhead Gender Responsive National Planning and Budgeting, drawing on well established partnerships with, among others, government institutions, academia, research institutes, and civil society organisations. Through this programme, we are placing special emphasis on developing capacities on national women’s machineries to substantively engage in policy discussions (macro-economic policies) in the context of the National Development Plans for the Mainland and Zanzibar.

UN Women in Tanzania will continue working with partners to ensure that fiscal laws, policies, and national action plans prioritise accountability on spending for results and increased budgetary allocations in favour of Gender Equality and Women Empowerment. Our work will also focus on supporting national and local government authorities to collect data and evidence of gender financing gaps, including from assessments of existing gender related public expenditure reviews and tracking.
