UK Budget

UK Government departments fund work on WPS from their core budgets, such as the FCO’s Global Britain Fund, and the cross-government funds including CSSF.

In line with the 2014 International Development (Gender Equality) Act, all development assistance must meaningfully consider the impact on gender equality.

The Government has also committed to spend more than 50% of DFID’s budget every year in fragile states and regions.

All programme portfolios are assigned to include at least one project marked ‘GEM 2’ indicating its principal objective is the promotion of gender equality.
