Infographics: Citizen's guide to the budget
Jamaica's budget is perhaps the most powerful tool of the Government to implement policies and advance the rights of Jamaicans - including children and young people.
The SDG Joint Programme (JP) has been working with key stakeholders in Jamaica since December 2020 to strengthen the Public Finance Management capacity in several key ministries: Finance and Public Service; Education, Youth and Information; and Health and Wellness.
Led by UNICEF and implemented under the technical supervision of UNDP and PAHO/WHO, the Joint Programme seeks to promote efficient, effective and equitable resource allocation to help Jamaica achieve Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the country’s long-term strategic development plan, Vision 2030.
This increased capacity, together with diagnostic budget analyses, development of financial simulation models and budget tracking systems, has supported the re-prioritisation of funds to services which help the most deprived and vulnerable populations including children, women and people with disabilities.
