Over the last seven years, there has been increasing interest in gender budget work worldwide. Over 50 countries have had gender budget initiatives of one sort or another. There are, however, big differences between the initiatives in different countries. In particular, in some cases the initiatives have been located inside government; in other cases in Parliament; and in yet others within civil society. This article discusses what gender budgets entail, and why non-governmental organisations (NGOs) might be interested in engaging in them.
