Paper for gender-budgeting the next EU Multi-annual Financial Framework

WIDE+, Care, DSW, EWL, IPPF European Network, One, Plan International, Save the Children and World Vision make the case for a gender-responsive EU planning and budgeting in the context of the preparation of the next EU Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) post-2020 in this: For a gender-responsive EU budget.

It recommends:

  • Building capacity within the European Commission.
  • Adopting a clear set of tools and indicators to monitor gender objectives in the new MFF and ensuring the collection of gender disaggregated data in all programmes.
  • Conducting a gender impact assessment of the next MFF before its adoption.
  • Establishing clear mechanisms and feedback loops in the MFF cycle to maximise its gender responsiveness.
