Social Policies and Child Rights Monitoring
This programme will contribute the following key expected results:
This programme will support the reform of the social sector and the formulation of policies and budgets that target vulnerable and socially excluded children. Through policy reviews across all social sectors it will address institutional capacity gaps within policy design, implementation and planning at various levels of government through analysis of quantitative and qualitative data.
The main programme areas will include social and economic policy development, evidence-based communication for development and partnerships in support of children’s rights. One of the targets is to provide 40% of communities with increased awareness of social inclusion and the mechanisms that support inclusion for children.
As part of a joint United Nations programme on Democratic economic governance, funded by the Millennium Development Goals Achievement Fund, this programme will support citizen participation in municipal governance in relation to securing access to water. It will lead activities designed to foster inclusive participation and promote accountability and transparency for all decisions related to public utilities.
