Breaking new frontiers for gender responsive budgeting: the Kerala Model

This article prepared by Yamini Mishra, Gender Responsive Budgeting Specialist, South, East and South East Asia, UN Women challenges us to think about what GRB has meant for the reality of women's lives?

Has it translated into better outputs and outcomes in the lives of women at the grassroots in any significant way? Has it resulted in more gender equitable development outcomes?

To answer these critical questions, Yamini Mishra takes a close look at the application of GRB in Kerala, the southernmost state of India which strides to effectively advance gender equality and women's rights have been applauded, although many challenges remain.
