62nd session CSW

Nauru to develop national Gender Policy

The Minister for Home Affairs, Education, Land Management and Health, Charmaine Scotty said the policy will be applied across government departments and mainstreamed into policies and laws.

Scotty informed the 62nd session of the Commission on the Status of Women at the UN that Nauru will introduce Gender Responsive Budgeting to ensure that the national budget allocations are equal and optimally applied so output is the same for both men and women.
