The Fiscal Space Analysis (FSA) investigated the options that are available to the Government of Rwanda to address the funding demands of priority sectors for children within a fiscally sustainable framework. The FSA began by reviewing the recent evolution of the availability of financial resources within the Government budget for expenditure flows directly relevant to children’s welfare and development. It does this through a fiscal space accounting framework, centred around the Government budget and the identification of ‘priority’ sectors considered most relevant for children’s welfare. A projection exercise of this kind could help UNICEF engage in technical dialogue with policymakers and other stakeholders to discuss possible government policy approaches. It will help to determine how and whether these policies would make it possible for the authorities to sustain and perhaps enhance the fiscal space for expenditure in sectors on which children depend.
