This is the outcome of the Training of Trainers workshop on ‘Demystifying Child Centric Budget Analysis’, which was held in Dhaka, Bangladesh, 21st -24th July 2010, within the framework of Save the Children's long standing commitment to the fulfilment of children’s rights. The event was co-organised by Save the Children Sweden's Regional Office for South and Central Asia and HAQ: Centre for Child Rights, New Delhi, and counted with the presence of Save the Children staff from Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Nepal and Bangladesh and the Civil Society. Budget Analysis is not only about budgets, it is a tool to understand situation of children, the constitutional, legal and policy provisions for children and resource allocation as well as resource utilisation for children’s rights. It is a valuable tool, not only for monitoring state performance in the implementation of the rights of children and holding the state accountable, but also for Child Rights Policy Planning and Programming.
