'Budget for Children Analysis' Toolkit

Exciting work is going on in relation to budgeting on children's issues.
I will list here some documents that look at ways of involving children in developing and monitoring budgets related to children's issues.
The 'Budget for Children Analysis' Toolkit is a joint effort by HAQ: Centre For Child Rights and Save the Children, which provides steps for analyzing State Budget allocations and monitoring government commitments to Child Rights. The toolkit has been designed to demystify and elucidate in easy-to- understand language the concept of ' Budgeting for Children'. It aims to strengthen the capacities of civil society organisations in undertaking Child Centred State Budget Analysis, as an effective way to advocate for appropriate budget allocations for children issues and good governance, and to hold governments accountable for fulfilling children's rights.
