This policy brief examines the progress of the Government of Kosovo towards implementing the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 5.c.1 Indicator on gender responsive budgeting, which is: “The percentage of countries with systems for tracking and making public allocations for gender equality and women’s empowerment.” This indicator aims to help achieve the adapting and strengthening of policies and legislation to promote gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls at all levels. The aim of this indicator is to enable governments to achieve their gender policy objectives, such as eliminating gender-based violence or increasing women’s employment by pursuing equal resource sharing. As noted in this indicator, “when making the monitoring of the allocations public, governments engage in higher levels of transparency and accountability in budget decision-making.”
