According to the project manager at NEPAD secretariat; ‘Africa needs gender responsive planning and budgeting’. This was further explained that African women still face institutional, legal, political, environmental as well as socio-economic constraints, which impact their capacity and ability to undertake sustainable livelihoods. UN Women explains that Gender-responsive budgeting (GRB) is government planning, programming and budgeting that contributes to the advancement of gender equality and the fulfillment of women’s rights.
