The report “Budget Analysis from a Child Rights Perspective: 2010-11 to 2013-14 (Federal and Provincial)”, was published by the Child Rights Movement (CRM), a coalition of over 120 non-government organisations (NGOs). The Budget Analysis from the child rights perspective is a continuity of the CRM’s and its member organizations’ efforts for pushing the federal and provincial governments to realize and recognize children’s rights and increase investment in children. According to the report, the allocation for children-specific programmes represents only  around 0.68 per cent of the total budget. The four provinces studied in the report (Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Punjab and Sindh) spend slightly more percentage-wise but, with the exception of Sindh, no province has maintained an increasing trend of spending on children-specific initiatives since 2010-11.

The report consists of two major parts: the situation of children in Pakistan and the analysis of the budget documents of the federal and provincial governments. The conclusion and recommendations, drawn at the end of the report, are based on the material and analysis in the two parts.
