BUXHET iM – Gender Budgeting in the Municipality of Tirana
After a series of successful activities in each administrative unit, the Tirana Municipality and Mr. Erion Veliaj, the mayor in particular, launched their commitment for gender budgeting. From now on, gender budgeting will take place in the Municipality of Tirana as a regular part of its work.
The first initiative is addressed to women entrepreneurs from Tirana with the amount of 6 million lek at their disposal. Thank you Mr. Erion Veliaj, Mayor of Tirana, and thank you to the Tirana Municipal Council, 52% of whose members are women and girls.
In this activity, the Municipality of Tirana requested more from the "BUXHET iM" project, which thanks to UN Women Albania was made possible in several Albanian municipalities. In addition to the training of Municipality staff who will work with the budget, they also requested specific training for the members of the Municipal Council regarding gender concepts and gender budgeting. Many more activities will continue in December and January 2016.
