 Subject:  Gender-responsive budgeting
 Answer in writing 

The EU has committed to gender equality as expressed in Article 3 of the TEU and Article 8 of the TFEU.

Furthermore, the joint declaration of Parliament, the Council and the Commission attached to the 2014-2020 multiannual financial framework (MFF) commits the three institutions to ‘integrating, as appropriate, gender-responsive elements in the EU budget’.

Gender budgeting is one of the key strategies available to further mainstream gender. Gender budgeting is needed to ensure gender equality by focusing on how public resources are allocated.

In light of the fact that the Council called on 26 May 2015 for ‘gender-responsive policies … including in budgeting’ (9242/15), has the Commission taken any steps towards incorporating a gender-responsive budgeting approach into the 2021-2027 multiannual financial framework? If not, why not?
