I. DEFINITION
Any budget outlines planned revenues and expenditures and most budgets are not specifically targeted to women or men. A government's budget, for example, outlines how much revenue is expected as well as the amount of money to be spent on various programs. A gender budget outlines not just expected revenue and expenditures, but also responds to the budget impact on women and men, resulting in budgetary commitments that show a solid, accountable connection to a government's gender equality commitments."
