GENDER CONTEXT ANALYSIS OF BUDGETARY AND FISCAL POLICY PREPARATION AND IMPLEMENTATION IN DELTA, ENUGU, LAGOS AND RIVERS STATE
The research is conducted by Kebetkache Women Development & Resource Centre to examine the current context of gender roles in the informal sector in Nigeria, particularly the four project states. The research is in furtherance of the Financing for Development (F4D) under the Oxfam Strategic Partnership project.
Kebetkache's intervention in the Financing for Development (F4D) contributes to the achievement of informed Nigerian citizens actively demanding fair taxation practices and participatory budgeting towards enhanced transparency and accountability. This is key to addressing the low development in the communities. The disconnect between those in positions of authority and the people who are to be served explains why governance has not made any significant impact on community members. This research reveals this disconnect by highlighting the level of participation of women in budgeting.
The purpose of the research, therefore, is to provide context for the quantitative and qualitative content analyses of gender roles that are to be addressed by the Financing for Development project. The study aimed to generate data on the status of the participation of women in governance with regards to engaging with authorities on
budget and fiscal issues and assess the changes that have occurred since 2012 and its impact on women's welfare, poverty, inequality, and development.
