UNICEF Burundi develops budget briefs on an annual basis to explore the extent to which Burundi's national budgets address children's needs.

The briefs analyze the size and composition of budget allocations to sectors that matter most for children (e.g. Education, Youth Sector, Child Protection, Social Protection, Health, Water, Hygiene and Sanitation and Early Childhood Development) in the current fiscal year as well as offer insights into the efficiency, equity and adequacy of past spending. All the briefs by sector are available for downloading.

The main objectives of the budget briefs include synthesizing complex budget information so that it is easily understood by different stakeholders and putting forth key messages and recommendations to influence public financial decision-making processes and leverage domestic resources for children.
