    • Costing Experiences and Methodologies for Gender Equality Increasing Financing for Gender Equality: Strategies and Challenges Sta Cruz, Bolivia, 10-12 September 2013
    • CHALLENGES • What needs to be assessed?  High economic volatility  Donors and multilaterals  High fragmentation of aid  Core vs non-core  Reduced budgets in some multilateral and bi-lateral agencies  Countries  Weak and narrow tax bases  Weak re-distribution  Strengthening extractive industry to increase revenues  Fiscal and budgetary reforms  Fiscal evasion  Trade
    • OPPORTUNITIES – Inclusion of gender equality in the post 2015 development agenda – Inclusion of gender equality in the commitments relating to aid effectiveness (Busan) – Inclusion of gender equality in other processes and international commitments and recommendations (Rio+20, social protection floor, etc.) – Interagency work (UN) – Rationalization of the aid efforts on the part of donors (reduction of fragmentation and joint work with multilaterals to increase the impact of aid)
    • STRATEGIES GRB • Widen horizon COSTING • Methodologies • Approach PRODUCTION AND ANALYSIS OF DATA • Quantitative • Qualitative
    • STRATEGIES • RIGHTS – Legal frameworks (national and international) should be used to strengthen the evidence based approach in favour of more resources or improving their use – Intergovernmental processes for monitoring international commitments should include monitoring of financial resources to achieve them – National legislations should also include budgets for implementation – THE ROLE OF CIVIL SOCIETY ORGANIZATIONS AND PARLIAMENTS (SHOULD NOT FORGET THE POLITICAL DIMENSION)
    • STRATEGIES • GRB: widen the horizon of this strategy of gender mainstsreaming – More fiscal analysis and proposals (micro-simulations, statistical analysis and modeling of time use surveys, joint analysis of these and other available surveys) – Monitoring of the impacts of GRB (earmarked budgetary resources, classifications, etc.) – Develop tools to measure the impact on gender equality of other sectors – Use GRB to increase the number and proportion of women in the higher spheres of government (technical, management and political)
    • STRATEGIES • COSTING: different tools and approaches for governments and advocates – Costing of gender equality plans and legislations (measures and or impacts) – Costing of problems and crimes (VAW, maternal mortality, under employment, wage gap and access to resources, informality, multiple discrimination, low activity and employment, glass ceiling)… – ….and of solutions (improvement of prevention and services, universal access, inclusion of unpaid care work in the design of fiscal and para-fiscal policies, programmes to promote women and elimination of wage gaps, transition to formality, employment policies
    • STRATEGIES • DATA PRODUCTION AND ANALYSIS: Quantitative and qualitative, survey and administrative – Make better use of data in countries where statistical institutes are being strengthened in the area of gender statistics and continue to support and continue to build capacity in those where they are lagging – Improve the research capacity (modeling and software) in the statistical and academic institutes in order to improve the analysis and improve the analysis and policy design and implementation through better use of surveys and administrative data – Combine quantitative and qualitative methods and promote multidisciplinary teams
