Making LGUs Gender-Responsive: A Primer For Local Chief Executives aims to make clear the importance of being sensitive to gender in determining the needs and resources of the locality, in planning and carrying out programs, and in running the local government machinery itself.
This guidebook explains the importance of gender mainstreaming in local development planning and budgeting; enumerates guidelines in adopting gender responsive strategies and programs in the preparation of local plans and budget; and includes tips on how to implement the government’s gender equality policy as mandated under the Women in Development and Nation Building Act (RA 7192) and other laws.
