Vídeo destacado: Presupuestos y planificación con sensibilidad de género en la India

El documental proporciona modos prácticos para lograr planes y presupuestos sectoriales con sensibilidad de género. El video recoge el trabajo ejemplar realizado en la India por el Departamento de Ciencia y Tecnología y el Departamento de Agricultura y Cooperación en el ámbito local (de la Unión). Las experiencias muestran de qué manera en dos sectores considerados “ajenos a las mujeres”, los temas de género fueron reconocidos y abordados por los programas y políticas del sector. En el ámbito del gobierno estatal, el documental cubre las iniciativas asumidas por la Junta de Planificación del Estado de Kerala y destaca los programas específicos de género en sectores como el Departamento de Obras Públicas y la Policía. Para recoger las experiencias se realizaron entrevistas con funcionarias y funcionarios de los departamentos en las esferas de la Unión y el Estado y se reunieron testimonios de las mujeres sobre el terreno.
