The Argentine Congressional Budget Office (OPC) participated in the fifth edition of the Gender-Responsive Budgeting (GRB) program offered by the Parliamentary Training Institute of the Honorable Chamber of Deputies of the Nation.
On Wednesday 21, María Pía Buigiafreddo, analyst of the Directorate of Studies, Analysis and Evaluation of the OPC, gave the third of the four consecutive weekly classes of the program, which was held in virtual modality and was referred to the budget execution.
Up to June, the National Government executed 36% of the budgeted expenditure in this area, basically through cash transfers to women, which accounts for 98% of GRB resources, as she pointed out.
The data summarized during this training are included in the respective monitor published on the OPC’s web page, which is updated periodically.
The training program, scheduled in consecutive weekly meetings, focused on human rights, budget design and diversity.
