TRAINING OF DUTY BEARERS ON INCLUSIVE BUDGET PROCESSES
01 November 2022
Greetings from Juba, South Sudan!
Today we start a workshop with members of Specialised Parliamentary Committees and Line Ministries responsible for food security, nutrition and WASH in South Sudan. This is an opportune time to re-emphasise our agenda, and steer the participants towards the goal of increasing financial resources to end hunger and improve WASH interventions. #Right2Grow #ChildRightsCoalition
National Budget Analysis Parliamentarian Engagement Meeting
On Friday 8 July 2022, the BMET lead organisation Child Rights Coalition (CRC) conducted a National Budget Analysis Parliamentarian Engagement Meeting, which was very interactive and exciting. In attendance were chairpersons of Specialized Committees supporting 3 targeted ministries, Members of Sub-Clusters in Parliament, Commissioner of the Human Rights Commission, Directors of R2G Consortium members, Media and Children representatives.
The Members of the Parliament (MPs) appreciated the role of CRC in budget advocacy and welcomed the evidence generated. They acknowledged that it's good time to learn about the gaps in the previous budgets which will inform the current budget process during parliamentary sitting. They encouraged CRC to provide evidence-based data on issues affecting children to inform their discussions.
