Public budgeting for children’s rights is about making sure children are visible and taken into account in budget related documentation and throughout the budget process. Governments, civil society organisations and the United Nations are among those that have increased their focus on children’s rights in public budgets and budget processes during the past three decades. There have been advances in the way budget systems of governments are set up to take children into account, and the way budget decisions are monitored and followed-up in relation to child rights outcomes by governments and civil society.

This short e-learning course introduces participants to concepts, principles, standards and practical examples of child rights public budgeting and monitoring. The course will address basics of child rights public budgeting and monitoring; the importance of budget transparency; obligations of governments; and possibilities for participation of civil society, including children.

Participants will be presented with research and case studies, and engage in practical exercises to inspire thinking around how they can advance child rights public budgeting in different contexts.
