Gender responsive fiscal policy
Gestión fiscal  sensible al género

What do we do?

We help countries of Latin America and the Caribbean design and implement fiscal policy measures that improve gender equality, a fundamental factor to ensure a sustainable economy both in the short and medium term.

Action areas

  • Analyze the macroeconomic and distributive impacts of gender-sensitive fiscal policies so that policymakers can adopt the most effective and sustainable measures to support gender equality while boosting economic growth and reducing income inequality and poverty
  • Understand the effects of gender-sensitive fiscal policies not only on gender inequality but also on other macroeconomic and social variables
  • Assess the interaction of spending, taxes, and gender
  • Explore fiscal policies that affect women's participation in the paid workforce (female labor force participation), gender pay gaps, economic growth, income inequality, and poverty
