Femconsult is particularly looking for experts with experience in gender budgeting. We are involved in several opportunities that aim to promote gender sensitive budgets. These are not separate budgets for women, or budgets which spend the same amount on women and men, but budgets that recognise the different situation and needs of women and men and aim to promote gender equality.
