Spending Better for Gender Equality in Education
Why the quality of financing matters for girls’ education, and what to do about it
It is crucially important to get every dollar of value from financing for girls’ education. Two simple processes, which are increasingly used in many countries, open the door to ensuring value for money at the same time as improving gender equality. These processes are ‘gender responsive public expenditure management’ and ‘cost effectiveness analysis’. This policy note shows how these processes are already generating success in Uganda, and provides some pointers for how best to introduce them.
