Dear users, today we have a very personal request. We have decided to offer our learning materials free of charge because we believe in an open, pluralist economic science that is available to everyone, worldwide. We do this without advertising because we want to remain independent of commercial interests. But our commitment to independence and open access also has its price. Every year we have large costs for programming, staff and to support our authors. If everyone reading this gave a small amount, we could keep Exploring Economics thriving for years to come - but 99% of our users don't give. So today we ask you to protect Exploring Economics's independence. The heart and soul of Exploring Economics is a community of people working to bring you unlimited access to high-qualitiy, economic learning and teaching material. Please take just a few moments to help us keep Exploring Economics going. Thank you!

What is Gender Responsive Budgeting
“This animated video explains gender-responsive budgeting and how it is used to mainstream gender in governance planning and budgeting. The video has been produced in the framework of the UN Women Regional Project 'Promoting Gender Responsive Policies in South East Europe and the Republic of Moldova, Phase II' (2013 -2016).”
It is an introduction to the concept of gender budgeting as a great tool to achieve gender equality by looking at budgets from a gender lens and by creating societies where men and women can have equal opportunities having in mind their different needs.
Comment from our editors:
This video is a good introduction of the way that a gender-sensitive framework can fundamentally change the approach of an economist or policymaker, and thus influence the distribution of public resources.
