Description

Title Open government for gender equality
Link with the Sustainable
Development Agenda 2030 (SDG) SDG 5: Gender Equality
Status quo / Issue to be addressed
Currently, there is a lack of accessible disaggregated
budgetary information about programmes aimed at
gender public policies.
It is not possible to access to sufficiently updated
budgetary information at the maximum level of disaggregation for the effective monitoring of the implementation of gender policies in the City of
Buenos Aires.
Likewise, this information is not available in a citizen-friendly manner.
Furthermore, there is a lack of information on the implementation of the Act 2110 on Comprehensive
Sexual Education (ESI). An advanced law in terms of its
proposal and contents, which acts as a framework on
the topic for all mandatory levels and modalities of
the public education system under state and private
management.
General objective
Open information on all programmes and resources
that the City allocates to gender policies, promoting
dialogue between government and civil society, and
encouraging planning improvements and investment in
gender programmes.
Likewise, we will seek to make the information on the
effective implementation of the Comprehensive Sexual Education Programme transparent through
openness of information, mechanisms of monitoring
and impact assessment as well as the involvement of
active participation from different sectors.Government area in

Brief description of the initiative
Adaptation of the open budget platform for the opening and display of updated budgetary and programmatic information about programmes and actions
with gender perspective.
Normalisation and unification of criteria regarding
information on the implementation of Comprehensive
Sexual Education, and generation of joint proposals to
improve the assessment and monitoring of its implementation.
Describe the way in which this
commitment is relevant to strengthen
OGP values of transparency, access to
information, public accountability, civic
participation, and technology and
innovation for openness and
accountability.
Openness of information in terms of gender programmes and policies will strengthen values of transparency and access to information as well as accountability.
Civil society will be able to follow-up, monitor progress
and propose improvements or new lines of action
which enhance the impact of the implementation of
gender policies as well as the Comprehensive Sexual
Education Act (ESI)
