Background :

Gender Responsive Budgeting (GRB) is a performance-based budgeting approach which enhances public policies efficiency, effectiveness and equity. It aims to reduce gender inequalities and discriminations against women through the definition and implementation of clear public policies monitored thanks to monitoring indicators and effectively implemented thanks to yearly voted budgets.

To ensure an effective implementation of GRB, Morocco has adopted since 2015 a legal framework enhancing GRB implementation at the national and territorial level. Besides, it has created an entity in charge of GRB implementation since 2013: The Center of Excellence for Gender Responsive Budgeting in Morocco (CE-GRB). The CE-GRB is mainly in charge of supporting the line ministries and local authorities in the effective implementation and monitoring of the GRB.

 

More particularly and regarding the national legal framework :

The Finance Organic Law 130-30 adopted in 2015 requires all the line ministries to :

  • Submit as an annex to the finance bill a report entitled “Gender-sensitive results-based budget report” or, more commonly, “Gender Report” (Article 48) ;
  • Present their annual budgets by program, regions and projects or actions, while defining gender sensitive objectives and indicators for each program (Article 39[1][2]).

At the territorial level, the Local Organic Laws (Law 111.14 related to the regions, Law 112.14 related to the prefectures and provinces and Law 113.14 related to the municipalities), adopted in July 2015, require all local and regional authorities to develop gender sensitive objectives and indicators for their programs or projects (Article 171, Article 150 and Article 158 respectively).

Besides, regarding the national institutional framework :

The Center of Excellence for Gender Responsive Budgeting of Morocco (CE-GRB) was launched by the Minister of Economy and Finance following the High-Level International Conference on Gender Responsive Budgeting held in Marrakech in November 2012. The establishment of this Center within the Ministry of Economy and Finance is a key outcome of the partnership launched since 2002 between the Ministry and UN Women to promote GRB as an efficient instrument for equality and gender equity.

The CE-GRB is based on a vision of capitalization, innovation, learning and sharing, and aims to establish a dynamic of excellence through the provided support to the various stakeholders in the field of GRB at the national, regional and global levels.

The CE-GRB strategy is based on four strategic axes :

  • Strategic Axis 1: Institutional support and capacity building provided by the CE-GRB is strengthened through the enhancement of CE-GRB efficiency and the development of a pool of GRB experts ;
  • Strategic Axis 2: Technical support is provided to GRB stakeholders through gender mainstreaming their planning and budget processes, as well as through the development of innovation and research on GRB ;
  • Strategic Axis 3: Promotion of GRB at the national and international level and the positioning of CE-GRB as a global platform for GRB knowledge capitalization and best practices sharing is ensured ;
  • Strategic Axis 4: Achieving equity and social justice based on scientific evidence by providing stakeholders with tools and technical instruments to strengthen gender mainstreaming in their budget processes.

Within the framework of its strategic axis 2, the CE-GRB and the Ministry of Economy and Finance’s Department of Financial Studies and Forecasts (DFSF) would like to improve the “Gender Report” and to make it a strategic tool to enhance public accountability in promoting gender equality.

The CE-GRB and the Ministry of Economy and Finance’s Department of Financial Studies and Forecasts (DFSF) are looking for an international expert in Public Finance / Gender Responsive Budgeting to oversee the improvement of the “Gender Report” based on GRB and Public Finance Management key principles and the capacity building of the ministerial departments and parliamentarians in drafting and using this report.
