This paper discusses the definition and measurement of Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) Indicator 5.c.1. It compares Indicator 5.c.1 with other SDG fiscal indicators. It discusses the relationship of SDG Indicator 5.c.1 and Indicator 8 of the Global Partnership for Effective Development Cooperation (GPEDC). It considers interim proposals for Indicator 5.c.1 put forward by UN Women and discusses lessons from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) research project on gender budgeting and from the 2016 Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) survey of gender budgeting practices. It presents in its Annex the final criteria and questionnaire of Indicator 5.c.1 that was presented to the Inter Agency Expert Group on SDGs and that resulted in the reclassification of the indicator to Tier II.
