The overall programme result is to ensure that investment and social protection for children in their early years are enhanced. To achieve this result, efforts will be made to ensure the implementation of the following:

  • Advocacy for the creation of an independent child commission to implement the Child Act, and ensuring that budget analysis and networking on the evolving policy environment are informed by quantitative and qualitative evidence.
  • By the end of 2013, sustained advocacy will have been conducted and the necessary tools developed to support the operationalization of a Child Benefit Cash Transfer programme in line with the South Sudan Development Plan.
