For a gender-responsive EU budget

[Brussels, 14 March 2018] The European Women’s Lobby contributed to a paper written by NGOs that makes the case for a gender-responsive European Union (EU) planning and budgeting in the context of the preparation of the next EU Multiannual Financial Framework(MFF) post-2020.

With the help of gender indicators and gender impact assessments, the EU could carry out a gender-responsive analysis of the current MFF and adjust expenditures in the next MFF. Together with increased and targeted funds to improve the lives of women and girls, a better-structured EU budget could help to address gender equality.
