- Publish Date: Sep 27, 2019
The 2019 review and redesign of the Gender Responsive Results-Based Budgeting Report (RBG), more commonly referred to as the "Gender Report," in Morocco has led to a series of recommendations for 2020. With support from UN Women Morocco, the review set out to strengthen GR content to ensure it is a strategic accountability tool for monitoring and evaluating public policies from a gender perspective. It focused on assessing the contribution of the GR to the implementation and monitoring of GRB in Morocco, as well as challenges, including the lack of joint ownership of GRB by ministerial departments and the limited use of sector-specific gender analyses. Starting next year, the Gender Report (GR) will be more standardized to make it easier for users to access and provide information. This will include a clearer drafting framework for contributing line ministries and alignment with a new analytical approach.
