Gender-Responsive Budgeting in Palestinian Local Government Authorities

The gender budget derives its importance from the fact that it is fused with the principles of local governance on the grounds that it preserves the rights of the less fortunate groups, and seeks to take into account their special situations in a way that achieves equal opportunities and justice between the various groups of society and its members, men and women, boys and girls. This is done by rearranging priorities in terms of expenditures and sources of revenue in order to advance this social justice forward.
