This toolbox has been developed to assist the Ministry of Environmental Protection of Serbia in integrating gender equality considerations into various sectoral programmes and policies. It provides a practical and workable approach to gender mainstreaming in environmental policy. It has been applied to two programmes chosen by the Ministry of Environmental Protection: the National Waste Prevention Programme for the period 2020-2025 and the Roadmap for circular economy in Serbia. Although the two programmes were used to exemplify the approach during a training session, the toolbox can be applied to any other sector of environmental policy, possibly during thematic workshops, involving the experts in charge of developing a specific programme or policy and internal or external experts on gender.
The development of this toolbox was supported by funding from the United Nations Regular Programme on Technical Cooperation.
