In addition, since 2010, UN Women has been implementing the regional project “Promoting Gender Responsive Polices in South-East Europe and the Republic of Moldova” (GRB Project) covering Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, FYR Macedonia and the Republic of Moldova. The project is structured around two outcomes: 1) Governments in targeted countries promote gender responsive fiscal laws, policies and national action plans to enable specific budgetary allocations for gender equality; 2) Gender advocates and Members of Parliament demand accountability from national and local governments on policies and budgetary allocations for gender equality and women’s empowerment. The project’s country component implemented in the Moldova includes activities focused on enhancing the institutionalization of gender responsive budgeting (GRB) at central and local level, working with civil society organizations to serve as gender budget watch-dogs and introducing GRB in academia. While the GRB Project is coming to an end in December 2018, activities on GRB will be continued in the country as part of UN Women’s ongoing efforts to advance gender responsive governance systems at different levels of government.
