Child Responsive Planning and Budgeting Policy Seminar
KIPPRA, in collaboration with UNICEF, held a roundtable meeting with stakeholders to share ideas and perspectives on Child Responsive Planning and Budgeting. The meeting, which was held on 5th October, 2017 at the Panafric Hotel, Nairobi, drew participants from the following institutions: Parliamentary Budget Office, Ministry of Labor and Social protection; Twaweza, Kenya and Health Rights Advocacy Forum (HERAF).
The participants identified areas where the next budget framework should focus on in order to ensure children’s rights are mainstreamed in health, education, water and sanitation, public financial management and child protection. Other areas include gender and disability. The proposals will be shared with the relevant stakeholders during the 2018/19 budget making process.
