This paper looks at what budgeting for climate change initiatives can learn from gender-responsive budgeting (GRB).

It aims to guide lesson-learning from the experience of gender-responsive budgeting (GRB) initiatives — and to a lesser extent child-friendly budgeting initiatives — that might inform initiatives in respect of budgeting for climate change. It draws on the author’s experience of working on GRB and child-friendly budgeting in more than 30 countries and advising even more countries long distance on these topics. A separate companion paper describes in more technical detail the approach taken by various countries to gender budget statements.
