In this tactical notebook, the Children’s Budget Unit (CBU) of the South African NGO Idasa provides us with
a promising model of NGO-based budget monitoring. They argue that children’s rights can be protected only
if a government’s fulfillment of those rights is monitored through careful analysis of its budget and spending.This notebook demonstrates not only how important budget monitoring can be for implementing change, but also that it is a feasible challenge even for relatively small NGOs. The CBU has broken the task down into steps, which should encourage other organizations to tailor a budget-monitoring approach to their own capacity and their own human rights goals.
