Child Rights Governance Policy Brief: Financing public spending on children: Going beyond business as usual

There are multiple ways a state can mobilize resources to finance child rights obligations as formally made by ratifying the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). This policy brief highlights a few key areas: domestic revenue mobilization, combating illicit financial flows, innovative financing, responsible lend­ing and borrowing and aid.

Although Save the Children acknowledges their importance, and the need to address them, this policy brief does not discuss issues such as diaspora remittances, private capital flows, micro-finance, reform of international finance institutions, trade and public-private partnerships.
