The African Report on Child Wellbeing - Budgeting for Children
This 2011 edition of The African Report on Child Wellbeing is the second in a series of reports published biennially by The African Child Policy Forum as our contribution to putting Africa’s children on the public and political agenda, and to holding African governments accountable to their obligations – to their children.
The 2008 edition of The African Report on Child Wellbeing was a resonance and a major contribution to promoting good governance and child wellbeing. It has become a major source of information and data on children in Africa and it has informed programmatic development of a number of organisations. In its conclusion the 2008 report recommended a two-pronged approach to public policy for the realisation of children’s rights and wellbeing: one of which was ensuring budgetary commitment to meeting the basic needs of children. Thus the theme for this report – Budgeting for Children.
