Latest: The African Report on Child Wellbeing 2011February 14th, 2011
This 2011 edition of The African Report on Child Well-being is the second in a series of reports published biennially by The African Child Policy Forum as their contribution to putting Africa’s children on the public and political agenda, and to holding African governments accountable to their obligations – to their children.
This report explores in greater depth the obligations of African countries to invest in their children, the arguments for doing so – from a moral, social, political, and economic perspective – and, the importance of the national budget (as a key policy document of the government) in:
(1) positively impacting upon the well-being and quality of life of children, through budget allocations to sectors that most impact upon children’s lives; and
(2) representing an effective barometer of true government commitment to the rights of the child.
