Gender Budgeting for African Development

The purpose of this paper is to sharpen the understanding of the linkages between gender equality, poverty reduction and Africa's development and to scrutinize ways in which these linkages can be reflected into policy formulation and public resource expenditure towards meeting the BPFA, MDGs, thus paving the way for a sustainable development of the Continent as envisioned by NEPAD. In so doing, gender budgeting will be used as the main pathway to gender equality and African development.
