Price of Peace : Financing for gender equality in post-conflict reconstruction
In an attempt to get more detailed information, the Gender Team of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) commissioned case studies in Kosovo, Sierra Leone, Southern Sudan and Timor-Leste. The case studies examine whether and how resources were allocated and used in post-conflict reconstruction initiatives to promote gender equality and address women’s needs. The studies examined whether gender issues were addressed through separate projects or through addressing gender issues in mainstream projects and programmes. They also examined how funding of post-conflict reconstruction related to their own budgets with respect to gender equality and women’s empowerment.
