Working Group on UN SWAP Gender Marker Implementation

Lead agency


Donna Grimwade, Deputy Director of Financial Management, Division of Management and Administration, UN Women

The Working Group on Gender Markers was formed following a presentation on the “UN-SWAP: Tracking resources for gender equality and the empowerment of women” made at the Finance and Budget Network meeting of June 2014.  The purpose of the Working Group is to support the implementation of UN-SWAP Performance Indicators 8 (resource tracking/expenditure) and 9 (resource allocation/budget) through increasing the use by UN entities of gender equality markers that apply the UNDG/CEB endorsed standards and principles to produce comparable data.
