Gender Based Analysis (GBA) in Canada: What Can Sectoral Ministries do in India?


MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: Prima facie evidence may suggest that Canadian experience of GBA contribute little to the process of gender budgeting in India as Finance Canada is outside the purview of GBA. But the point to be noted is that Canadian experience of GBA across Federal Departments throws light to a significant institutional networking system to establish gender budgeting across identified Departments in India from the limited purview of macro-scan of Union Budgets. At the same time, as Indian experience revolves around gender analysis of budgets and Canadian experience is more comprehensive across various Federal Departments but excluding the engendering of budgeting process in Finance Canada, the learning process is definitely symbiotic. This symbiotic process can ensure a two-way learning process between India and Canada in the realm of gender mainstreaming. Canada can draw lessons from India on integrating gender perspective in budgetary policies and India can draw lessons from Canada on the strategies and tools of mainstreaming gender across various Ministries/Departments.
