Abstract

The NIPFP assisted the Department of Women and Child Development (DWCD) to come up with a methodological framework to assess the impact of gender budgeting in nine departments. As part of this effort, the NIPFP faculty members were expert resource persons in two workshops organized by the DWCD for these nine departments and for several other departments that have set up gender budgeting cells. The objectives of these workshops were to enable the ministries prepare a profile of their public expenditure and specify gender-disaggregated beneficiaries, conduct beneficiary incidence analysis and impact assessment, in terms of their outcomes on gender.
