Izabella Barati Stec, Affiliated Professor at SPP gave a talk at UNEP HQ
"Izabella Barati Stec, Affiliated Professor at SPP gave a talk about “The role of gender balanced budgets in reaching the Sustainable Development Goals” at the UNEP HQ in Nairobi. Gender inequality has human development costs and impacts the environment and gender budgeting is a way for governments, but also for institutions such as UN Environment, to promote equality through the budget process. The presentation explored how fiscal policies aiming to close the gender gap spread economic and social benefit, reduce economic volatility and boost economic development. Gender mainstreaming can also improve the accountability and transparency of budgets."
