  10. 10. Is integrating gender perspective in the budgetary cycle a necessary or desirable element of an inclusive budgeting process? To what extent is it appropriate for the gender aspects of policy to be included explicitly within the resource allocation process, rather than dealt with primarily within line ministries? What are the pro’s and cons of the various approaches? What are the challenges faced by governments hampering the effective integration of gender impact assessments into budgetary cycle? What tools and policy processes are required to address the remaining challenges and support its implementation and evaluation? To what extent does your country/budget office have information on the gender impact of the budget, and how to improve them, which categories of population benefit from budgetary decisions, and which do not? How to avoid the risk that gender impact analysis in budgeting might become a mere compliance exercise, without real impact on the monitoring and design of policies and on gender outcomes? Questions for discussion
