The speakers said removing gender disparities is essential for ensuring the country’s sustainable development. They urged the Government to conduct regular monitoring of gender budget process. The speakers focused on the issues for enhancing wages of women, engaged in three sectors- agriculture, industry and service. They also said that change of mindset in looking into the gender issues is also necessary to reduce the gender gap.
50 percent allocation in gender budget would not ensure equality without change in mindset and checking the programs that widen disparities. They also urged the government not to introduce any budget that increases gender gap.
