Training on gender-oriented budgeting under present-day conditions is to be held for two days in Kolomyia. The employees of the city council’s structural units are going to learn how to develop the town’s budget with a gender aspect taken into account.

PLEDDG experts Tamara Ohorodova and Svitlana Zhavoronkova will share their experience in this area of expertise, and the participants will jointly develop the action plan for implementation of such budgeting.

Ensuring gender equality in the course of development of budget programs is not a demand of the executive directive only, but also of time, – which is a democratic society marker.

It is worth mentioning that the Ministry of Finance issued the Order on Approval of Methodological Guidelines for Implementing and Applying Gender Approach in Budgeting on January 2 this year.
